  • Enjoy the atmosphere of calm and coming here is a tour of Kyoto temples. In the course of the Maruyama Park visit from Mr./Ms. Shimizu is cool even in the summer the temple. But just to have a stair.

  • 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.

  • 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.
