  • Imakumano Kannon is one of the sub-temples of Sennyu-ji and its official name is Shin-Nachisan Imakumano Kannon-ji. THis temple is the fifteenth temple of the West Japan 33 Kannon Temple Pilgrimage. It is said that the origin of the temple is that Kukai carved a Kannon statue by himself and enshrined it in a hut. But it is also said that it originates from a temple erected by Sadaijin (Minister of the Left) Fujiwarano Otsugu in the period 854-857. The imperial court has reverenced this temple ‘for example, Emperor Gohorikawa was buried here in 1234) so that the temple prospered. The temple is very quiet, and is well-known as a great place to see cuckoos. In the graveyard located behind Hondo (main hall), there are three notable pagodas and it is said that they are the graves of Jien Sojo, Fujiwarano Tadamichi and Fujiwarano Nagaie respectively. The Hondō of the Imakumano Kannon-ji (今熊野観音寺) During the Momiji Season in Kyoto! It was built in 1712, it is in the same location of the original temple built here in 820, which was exactly where the Kumano Gongen appeared to Kōbō Daishi. Because of this, it is said that praying in the Hondō is especially powerful. This temple is also dedicated to Ebisu, one of the Seven Lucky Gods; every New Year, pilgrims make a short pilgrimage around the temples on this mountain, each one dedicated to one of the seven lucky gods, to ensure a good start to a lucky year.

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.
