  • No, really spacious and clean. At first glance, it's garden a drab. Is it just enough depth, however why bloom Kikyo and memorable garden. This is the place for home leisurely.

  • In areas associated with the tale of Genji, Murasaki Shikibu in this area was writing like that. No number contains materials relating to her, though it was prohibited and very little to see. I felt I think if 10 minutes is sufficient, but with this high 500 yen admission fee.

  • Is a famous temple with a history of moderate or better still is the rattle, holiday, and other festive occasions. I hardly ever come here, meet other worshippers. Kikyo's garden is in full bloom now because from it's own will.

  • Rozanji Temple is closely associoated with an author of Lady Murasaki and The Tale of Genji who served at Imperial Palace and wrote the first poem in the history of Japanese literature. It was her farther Fujiwara Kanesuke who was a court official built his mansion in this place. It is said this is the very place where Murasaki Shikibu wrote her great works as it is depicted on some stone monument standing in this temple. The temple was originally established in 938 on the hill side of Mt. Funaoka in Nishijin area and moved to the current location to escape the destruction by the great warlord Oda Nobunaga in the late 16th century. Rozanji was established by imperial command of Emperor Kokaku to bury the souls of imperial family. ( Trans-wor+ : TGM Kyoto Guide )
  • Relaxing quiet place. Wife loved this place here highlight of the trip.
  • good
  • 11/2016, I see them private cultural property special public. Genzo-Daishi Hall and visit, we see from near the statue. But smaller than I thought and I. Gohonzon is a statue of Amida Sanson. Recently designated important cultural asset in this picture?? this former mansion of Murasaki Shikibu, wrote the tale of Genji, named it after tale of garden to 0/1965 garden, was so. "Murasaki Shikibu wrote the tale of Genji in any room is?" Temple is said. I think better get so questions.

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.
