  • The best place for maple leaves watching. It's quiet, peaceful and when you walk to the top you can actually overlook the whole Kyoto city. Entrance fee is ¥400 per person. Totally worthy. 
  • Autumn and spring are great. Personally impressed green than leaves. Saga-saga road go to the autumn colored and 2 respect of the Chinese people, but fresh when others sparse, negative ion shower basks creations come to life!

  • Yama hillside in a temple. It is a climbing dressed up two-storied pagoda from the main gate. Rise to the top and views of Kyoto City appeared clean. It was not wall Temple.

  • This quiet little temple complex would be easy to overlook but you would find the short walk getting here well worth the effort. I visited many temples during Golden Week but I was most impressed with the simplicity and natural beauty of this place. The surrounding gardens are well laid out and not over tended. So many places have swarms of workers really overdoing the groundskeeping. This garden is in great condition but not overdone and very natural looking.
  • You can see classic temple and nice view of Narashiyama at once at here. I love this calm place.
  • A wonderful garden to get lost in.
  • A very quiet and beautiful temple.
