  • From JR saga-saga line Hanazono Station approach. Without traffic jams from the Kyoto station is arrival at 200 yen. The koshien Stadium 7-8 fit the vast breadth and. Ryu of the figure visits tickets purchased on the regular guided tours join in the Sanctum (Ryu and of Myoshin-ji Temple Bell), a bathroom can be set. Commentary by the temple staff is very easy to understand, it was a meaningful one-hour. Was also shot films in the environment.

  • Nice temple to see if you are in the area. I wouldn't make a special trip for it however.
  • It is quieter than other temples in Kyoto but it is absolutely worth visiting
