  • Will recommend to try Zazen by both and lost Windows and window of enlightenment around no place to eat or drink too much tourism with pinpoint accuracy

  • Not to be missed! A little more isolated and then thankfully a bit quieter. A place full of colors, autumn is magical. Here you will find many photographers because everything is photogenic. Don't you ever take. I hope it stays a little "secret" ...

  • Beautiful big trees in the garden in front of the entrance there is a famous square lost Windows with rounded "enlightenment"window on the leaves. No parking lot is located near the bus stop, but be careful.

  • This is my go to place in Kyoto. There really isn't a bad time to come and see the temple, but the fall when the leaves starts to turn is by far the most stunning. During the busy seasons you may have to spend a little extra time waiting to get the best photo of the circular and square window. Take a chance to look up at the ceiling in the main building to see the blood soaked floorboards from Momoyama Castle. You can find a few footprints as you look around.
  • Peaceful moment with great scenary. Best to visit around November
  • Beautiful experience... full of peace!
  • Nice temple if you are in the area
  • One of my favorite temples. Peaceful and very beautiful. Best of all, I had no umbrella and it was raining. A kind lady who was working there gave me an umbrella to stay dry. It was a great experience.
