  • It is a huge Temple of Jodo Shinshu Nishi hongan-JI sect. Individuals as well as in temples as a representative, seems to be straying parishioner Mr. bones. Spreads wide grave yard behind and out of there and go to Kiyomizu-dera is the road crumbled in the heavy rain. Been repaired?

  • Otani Honbyo ( also known as Nishi Otani ) is a large mausoleum combined with a temple built on a large area of Higashiyama Gojo. The place belongs to Honganji Temple of . The temple belongs to Jodo Shinshu ( True Pure Land Buddhism ) sect of Buddhism and it is said to hold the cremated remains of Shinran who is the founder of Jodo Shinshu. The cemetary ground on the north side of this temple is the biggest size in Kyoto which extends all the way up to Kiyomizu Temple located up on the top. You can get direct access to Kiyomizu Temple from the grave yard of Otani Honbyo by keep going up on the slope. You can take your bicycle up the hill. ( Trans-word+ : TGM Kyoto Guide )
  • Nice temple, dont forget to visit the very large and beautiful cemetary behind.
  • Happen to accidentally discover this temple. It looks grand so me and hubby check it out. Not touristy, all locals here. It is very beautiful. Then onwards, when we visited Kyoto, we definitely stop by this temple and walk via the back road to the cemetery going up to Kiyomizu-dera
