  • Visited 11/12 precincts where the foliage was at. Excellent views from the garden, many people are not. Easy-to-go so close to the bus station.

  • 10:00 visited on Saturday in mid-October. Few tourists because of cloudy weather, was Japanese. Unfortunately seeing floor maple in more seasonal weather is important. Worth going if it wasn't fine? Because it bought Maple jelly and postcards as a souvenir, but didn't put it in the bag (salt for the rumors? ) Will be confirmed before you buy as a souvenir if it is better.

  • Academy is a monzeki Temple temple of royalty and the five Regent houses, has served as the chief priest. In other words, ranging from architecture to the garden, the gallery there are superlative. So-called "said Kyoto will go ' the floor leaves became famous in the ad is too famous. As noted above, the Academy had at the monzeki Temple, its architecture is priceless. Small garden with views of the mountains behind the penetration is beautiful. Contemporary rock garden is famous. In addition, iwakura Tomomi spend here is famous. Floor leaves in the back of the room spent the highest price in the Academy 門主 daily, can't get close to the building (a really old. And such support in steel and aching. ) In for a room, a floor you can see the floor leaves to reduce the burden, not to mention indoors in any photo shoot is not possible. Come to the temple but purposes is essentially a pilgrimage for the purpose even if a major photo shoot but unavoidable is, in addition, view courtesy of the temple that us publicly available and valuable cultural heritage and should not shoot him in the indoor. That was much wondering why this great Academy of odd being lowering "advice (claims? ) "And 心得nai significance of the pilgrimage to the temple and try to read Monster Cramer is too often understood (laughs). Academy is a great temple history and tradition. Irsshrimsenn, such as how to take an arrogant attitude to the temple. Again in indoor photos are not for building protection.

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.
