  • In Maruyama Park, located in the Eastern Piedmont of the climb. So the Otani mausoleum next to the site of the temple is forces had previously. It is regrettable in compact garden, waterfall and pond you can walk around, but just building including in good condition No. With this admission a bit weak.

  • Back went the Maruyama Park. It is on the north side of the ancestral temple Otani. So visit early in the morning silence was itself. Saicho was the founder of Jishu sect Temple is was in the Muromachi period. Temple Gate Academy becomes a nun in a long approach was very quaint. I think a little-known spot in Kyoto. Walk up and down, in its own way, but offer beautiful views of the city! Admission is 500 yen.

  • To participate in the work in the morning. It is from 7 am. It was my other parent-child pairs. Sunny view from the temple and it's nice. 12 / 10 the foliage was left a little still. Is in the garden of the SEI was trying to take the cold I went because I wanted. I think I can feel the atmosphere of cultural heritage rather than the temple. More than the beaches.

  • The garden I loved the most in Kyoto. A stunning yet quiet experience.
  • Another nice temple here in Kyoto. There are honestly hundreds of them though, so you have to skip some. I liked this place, but only recommend going if you have time to spend.
  • Chorakuji Temple drifting tranquility a bit behind Maruyama Park made me forget the hustle and bustle of the city in just 5 minutes ' walk from the hustle and bustle of the Gion-Cho. Since ancient times more "rakuchu's great sacred" Wuyuan, the scenic love and statement is often used in the song, "past and present story", with many written in the Heian era of saigyo (tohshougu at pieces taking training) Sanka-Shu, the tale of the Heike, a famous classical. Also per 36 peaks of Mountain Music Director General at the Summit (tamuramaro ASA) mounds, from which the people of the city have been revered. Four seasons of Kyoto is a famous writer of the Edo period, RAI Sanyo, Shigure tohshougu foliage sings hinatayama are buried by the will. And even now, as a historical scenic beauty of each season can enjoy, especially autumn leaves are hidden in the capital is known as the attraction. Please visit us here in peace and quiet.

Mad person with tips to 滅binu, especially as dust before the wind. "That is used at the beginning of the tale of Heike, particularly in Japan is well known.

  • Rai Sanyo and Mito martyrs ' graves. Tadaomi storehouse Oishi kuranosuke doctor Terai Gen-Tomb. Here are close from Yasaka Shrine and Maruyama Park to almost no one. It is quiet. You can look through a mountain and was singing "rakuchu-leading graves' and view. Many insects in the summer and come in short sleeves, kimono and other sightseeing you cannot explore decent. (As much as possible fall-recommended for sunny winter weather to come) and covered in fallen leaves will walk down the street I don't know either way. Pretty steep. If you want to see firmly the grave shall I come with safety shoes and clothes.
