Goeido Shinran worship than to be enshrined kosho-ji Temple is of Shin Hing 正寺 of Amida Buddha to Buddha, Amida-Dou is big and clean. Fewer tourists than the ginkaku-ji Temple and comfortable visit.

  • Koshoji temple is located very near to the Kyoto Tower Hotel. Easily accessible and walking distance to the temple. Came around noon and not crowded at all. Quaint and spiritual ambience.  more »

  • Quiet place, no visitors. Looks beautiful though, free entrance.
  • A bit similar to a lot of other temples I've seen but drill beautiful! If you have free time it could be a good idea to go there :) plus it's free
  • Nice quiet place with really neat architecture.
  • Near the nishihonganji. This temple also beautiful.
  • I really like it, because its quiet there. Like there are few people going there. Its perfect for meditation. Its easy to accsess from the train station and its worth it if you search for a quiet place.

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.
