  • Walk all the way up to the top past the waterfall and to the left just below burial ground. Opening in the trees looks over most of Kyoto. Very peaceful and off the busy tourist walks.  more »

  • The temple is not impressed. Admission is 500 yen, which is absolutely not worth it. In addition to the temple here is a cemetery in the forest, move on which dangerous. In some places, stick out the sawed-down metal bars, which you can stumble, get hurt and fall from a steep ascent to the same bars and protruding branches. Some graves look abandoned, some broken headstone. The cemetery also has a traditional Japanese House with garden, which resemble small wooden sandals, jumping on the slippery rocks, but in Kyoto there are similar places cheaper and in Nishi Hongan-ji Temple, you can even watch a free.

  • A hidden and romantic place with a kindly monk who speaks english and lend you a bug spray, use it, there are many mosquitoes in the temple.
  • 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.
  • The garden I loved the most in Kyoto. A stunning yet quiet experience.
  • Was written and the gate, so I went. Or grounds once contained Otani ancestral temple area and Maruyama Park. Climb the steep stairs to go to the main hall. Go in the back and had the Mito clan.

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
