  • Close sisendou. It is shrouded by the relaxed atmosphere throughout the temple. The garden at the entrance to garden of pond with a spectacular new karesansui, get inside and there are. Opens a stunning bamboo forest, followed by in the garden. Also, Maruyama stress raising brush painting and Edo period wood type 50000 exhibits are quite impressive.

  • There are some very nice temples around this area, no tour buses or school trips. Enkouji is well worth the trip outside the city. It is not so far a walk to Ginkakuji and the road named Path of Philo...  more »
  • Not that big, but why is the impressive temple. Autumn is beautiful, very satisfied. Tint of mountains in Kyoto basin and garden can look at the same time is a time of bliss.

  • Enkoji Temple : Nice moss garden in its front with higan flowers grown in September. After visiting Matsugasaki you can go toward south along Shirakawa street and move toward east. That's how you get to Shugakuin district. There are some temples such as Manshu-in, Shisendo, Enkoji in the middle of eastern mountains in this area. This area is rich in nature and farm land and rice field up on the hill at the foot of the mountains. You see a lot of Higan Flowers along the way. Especially the ones at Enkoji Temple is spectacular. ( Trans-word+ : TGM Kyoto Guide 9
  • Ruhige Tempelanlage am Rande der Stadt.
  • 圓光寺 is your favorite places. Since few people can enjoy slowly. Ponds and MOSS and bamboo forest and landscape at least once to see your garden is very nice and beautiful. Neat garden planted bamboo and Maple and MOSS are the leaves in the water was a fantastic space. Because Hill has 圓光寺 views often overlooking the mountains and houses. Is the garden carpet of foliage spread around again, the leaves began to fall off one side red, yellow and green ground, jumps out the vivid paint colors. You can enjoy with all five senses, four seasons to like looking at big picture.

  • Leaves are very beautiful. Proper care has been, clean and very pleasant. It was a temple seems good but there were a lot of people who come and! Calligraphy demonstration is being held like so next time to strengthen, he thought.
