  • 常寂光寺背靠小倉山依山而建,是日蓮宗的名剎,也是京都紅葉季的著名景點之一,不能錯過喔! 進入常寂光寺茅草頂儉樸的山門,沿著陡坡石台階而上,就可以到達正堂大殿,坡道兩側為紅葉樹所圍繞,宛如一條紅葉的隧道!  more »
  • Deva and entering the gate, up the stairs and arrived in the main hall. And the left were two-storied pagoda became the myoken Temple, and even go up the stairs. View over Kyoto, was wearing a sleek two-storied pagoda. There were many foreign tourists.

  • View from the observation deck is often popular and Sagano walks halfway. Seek quiet people will hopefully fall foliage season is good, so good in winter. Upslope from the climbing stone steps is a really tough climbs as Deva, followed in the main hall. Through the two-storied pagoda gazebo, climb further and overlooking the Sagano. Characteristics of the area is Moss concentrated colored Temple Tower of druaga and equally? * It is recommended because Vista is not too large as Temple.

  • 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.
  • 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.
