As you admire the impressive wooden architecture, set in an intensely colored forest, you can alse enjoy panoramic views of a river that meanders through the valley beneath this Shingon shrine. Originally built in 824 CE, most of the present-day structure dates from 1623. Art lovers can admire the temple's statue of Yakushi Nyorai, declared a national treasure, before grabbing a snack at the cafeteria nearby.

    We get off at the entrance before continuing to visit jingoji Temple in 1 hour, by city bus from Kyoto station. From there and climbing down on foot in 20 minutes. We arrive at the jingoji Temple in the cherry tree gate. Entering the grounds and Hall other than natural so no stairs, walk slowly and take a stroll.

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.
