Ninna-ji Temple, Kyoto
Categories: Historic Sites, Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Nestled in the hills northwest of the city sprawl, Ninna-ji Temple represents one of the more historically important sites in Japanese Buddhism, recognized as part of a World Heritage Site. Though the surviving buildings date from the early 1600s, they stand on the site of a temple complex founded in the 9th century. Pay a visit to the wooded grounds and wander among cherry trees and past ponds, taking time to marvel at the swooped rooftops, intricate paneling, and ornate carvings that decorate structures like the head priest's residence and main pagoda. Keep in mind that you'll need to pay separate admission fees for some parts of the temple.

世界遺産「古都京都の文化財」のひとつであり、御室桜でも有名な仁和寺ですが、桜と紅葉の時期を外せば、空いていますね。国宝の金堂は非公開ですが、重文の二王門や五重塔を含む境内は無料で見学できます。宸殿造りの御殿は有料で拝観できます。ここの庭園から五重塔を見上げる光景は、絶景スポットが無数にある京都の中でも好きな景色です。Ninna-ji Temple famous for cherry blossoms is one of the "cultural assets of ancient Kyoto" World Heritage site, but by removing the time of cherry blossoms and autumn leaves, free, right now.

I recommend you to go to the Palace of Omuro, which you can see on the left side after the entrance, rather than Kondo. In the winter, your feet may be slightly cold because of walking in bare foot in the palace.
Well worth the price of admission
You'll need to pay an entrance fee to see the priest's palace - but it's worth it. The building is gorgeous and the view across the garden is quite stunning. The rest of the temple complex is really nice so make sure you've got enough time to walk around and see all the different things.
Some stuff under restauration/construction. Temple/Palace well very beautiful and not so overrun.
