  • Visited 10-3-day weekend. Leaves early so that worshippers and the slowly and allowed visits. Pass through the small gate and on both sides of the narrow Causeway green Maple more tunnels resemble. Past the temple neatly manicured garden and tea room are scattered. Also significant, since Kyoto City looks far away. I think it is very beautiful foliage season.

  • Is just a light temple fence close-up that place large garden itself, and interspersed with many tea places plenty of. Place the foliage season the rest of the year if we visit and quietly.

  • 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 )
  • You can feel the true colors of Kyoto, where a ramp enters in the temple along the winding back and forth is laid out in a beautiful garden along the way is suddenly spreads in front of small, gentle and beautiful mountain peaks. Well if you look at the luscious garden spun by itself is a stable mind and cabunhae. Machine, line with Kyoto's most impressive and beautiful bubbling into place.

  • Sukiya-style where there is a small temple. I think because there are manicured greenery foliage season is the best. After there parking parking is wasn't as long as the saw.

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.
