Daigo-ji Temple, Kyoto

4.1
#28 of 347 in Historic Sites in Kyoto
See a historic place of worship at Daigo-ji Temple, a UNESCO-protected Shingon Buddhist temple. Founded in 874 CE, the temple's name translates as "ghee," used metaphorically here to conjure images of the "crème de la crème" of Buddhist thought. Admire the artistry and architecture of the temple's five-story pagoda, constructed in 951 CE, representing the oldest surviving building in the city and officially listed as one of the National Treasures of Japan. The temple has gained protection as part of a wider area of ancient monuments.

    The Daigo-ji is a beautiful temple, which invites you to stroll and relax. Of course there are very many, impossibly beautiful plants in Japan and especially in and around Kyoto, but we felt the visit of Daigo-ji as very pleasant, because we all the time almost alone enjoyed the atmosphere there. The arrival is worth in any case because only a few tourists visit this temple complex.

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.
