  • 很荣幸成为第一个华人评价者。从京都站乘101巴士到北大路公交总站,换乘北1巴士,在鹰峰源光庵前下车,步行三分钟就到了。寺门口非常小,一条枫叶小路进去就是寺庙。庭院很小,非常幽静,就在山边,可以俯瞰京都城。我们是枫叶初红的时候去的,色彩斑斓,美不胜收!

  • Koetsu-ji Temple is located just about 100 meters west of Genko-an on the other side of the street. The garden of Koetsuji was originally the residence of Hon-ami Koetsu who was a noted artist in the 17th century. This entire property of the temple was granted to Koetsu from Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu in 1615. After the death of Koetsu, this residence was turned into the temple in 1656. Today the temple belongs to Nichiren sect of Buddhism. Koetsuji Temple is known for its beautiful bamboo fences called Koetsu Hedge, and it also features an elegant tea garden with three tea houses with thached roof. ( Trans-word+ TGM Kyoto Guide )
