  • If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful temple with less visitors, Nison-in is a good choice! I visited in June and thought it was pretty despite the reviews that say Autumn is the only time to visit...  more »
  • On June 1, I walked from Tamba Kameyama Castle to the ruins of Onki-ji Temple via Arashiyama. I walked the same distance as historical facts all at once. At that time, i visited Nison-in. Is this a historical street or not? However, it is. The monk told me that the birthplace of Kokura bean is This Temple Sisonin. Kukai-san brought soy from China and came back from the origin. And one thing is smarter. The view is Mt. Ogura.

  • Walk up some stairs, it’s calm and quite at the higher ground of the temple. The sound of birds and bell (when someone gongs the bell near by) is very soothing.
  • Went to the bamboo forest which was pretty disappointing but walked up the hill to this. Continue up the big staircase at the back to find amazing views out over the city. Very peaceful and interesting place. No one around when we visited which made it even better.
