    So Kyoto City line is a place were used in this way, but from this year's 6/7 3/31/2019 up construction for admission, did not get. It is good to go in April. 22 k I think autumn season colors all over fresh green moss garden graced the Nice approach of the stone in the Temple of Daitoku-ji Temple with the tacchu Temple, nestled between the bamboo and Maple is a popular place.

    Visited in the spring last year at the temple's favorite, recently went "from 6/9 up to 来年 10 月 末日 for renovation admission him" the announcement had been raised. That and spent a year and a half doing a massive renovation and retrofitting existing main pain seems surprisingly intense. So not this feature including approach until the next 11 months. Very nice leaves next year neck length-comb wait isn't.

    It is a temple sub-temples of Daitoku-ji Temple exposes all the time. Fall foliage is beautiful and is famous for, but it is also green. And hear the calling came out and Lady passed him in the gate, so how to temple is coming to clean up and it happened. Before entering the hotel. Bell stock says the crowds who visit customers will go with the opening reception please ring Bell, Bell's boss and young women come and clean. It is nice to have friends come to see the fall foliage ago I sat down, red carpet, sipping green tea and fresh green garden watch. Unlike say tour groups of 20 people and after a while, my uncle and aunt came in junior high school students on a school trip, was watching the garden quietly.

    Koto-in, a sub-temple of Daitokuji and built in 1601, is well known for its meditative tea garden of colorful maples within a moss garden. During the fall, other Daitokuji subtemples with impressive Japanese gardens or of historical importance are temporarily opened for visits. Entry fees for each are about ¥600. Daitokuji is easily accessed by Kyoto bus. iPhone 5 photo.

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.
