  • A little up there, "Yunlin-in" he! It seems to have been the beginning that it was originally built as Shinoin in the Heian period, and it seems to have appeared in the Kokamono collection as Unbayashi in afterwards. It is an important temple for talking about history. The building at that time was destroyed by the war of The Jin, but the present building was rebuilt in the year. Still, it is a history of more than 300 years and is terrible. It is also said that the purple ceremony club spent later years, and now it is narrow, but please take a walk in the historical precincts.

  • In the Heian period, Yunlin-in was a large temple where its name could appear in the Story of Makurakusako and Genji, but it was absorbed when Daitokuji was built during the North-South Dynasty.

  • Unrinji Temple : This temple has a strong connection with Daitokuji and Murasaki Shikibu who is an old time poem who wrote story of Genji. ( Trans-word+ : TGM Kyoto Guide )
  • It is said that it was a vast site before though it seems to be a small town temple now as a head of the Rinzai sect and Daitokuji. The appearance is not able to be seen because it is dark in the enshrined, and it is in the Zushi. Instead of saying that, the Kantoru who is on the right of the dō is a face that looks like he's been laughed off. It is "great mirror" which did to the time of the classics speaking of the Cloud Forest Academy. The story that the young samurai who happened to talk about the experience, and make a criticism in the big house and the wife. It is developed with irony in the fact respect the power struggle in the prosperity and the back of the "now entrance" Fujiwara Michicho.
