  • 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.
