Daigoji Temple, Kyoto
Categories: Historic Sites, Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
See a historic place of worship at Daigoji 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 night sakura scenes are hard to forget.
It was a beautiful place. The entrance fee was not too expensive. The grounds were beautiful. The pond and the Japanese gardens up top were really cool. If I were in Kyoto again I would definitely go back, and plan to spend more time there than I did the first time. We saw a dozen or more shrines and temples during our week there, and this was the best one for us.
