  • In this place we wandered randomly and without regret. A Grand Memorial Riozen-Kannon, created in memory of 2 million dead soldiers who died in the second world vojne. In the Centre, on top of the lower church sits a huge Buddha amid green hills. Before him the big pond (pool). Snow-White sculpture of the Buddha has a height of 24 meters. Against a backdrop of green mountains just looks fabulous! Inside the statue, you can go to the external staircase and Buddha there, inside another room where you can put a candle and think, pray for the dead. In this temple is not accepted to ask what religion you confess. Here you can pray all who considers it his duty to commemorate the deceased soldiers. Located in the eastern part of Kyoto. Near to all tourist routes. Visit necessarily, not regret. Complete harmony.

Goddess of mercy's from the size of him and like I sit where I'm headed, walked in. Goddess, I sit with crossed legs. When is has a long history never seems to be the face of the goddess of mercy is peaceful, kodai-ji Temple to recommend admission.

  • the place is tranquil and peaceful. With the admission ticket, you will be given an incense to give to the goddess of mercy. If you have time, you can go to the hill at the back.  more »

  • The entrance fee is cheap and you get one incense to burn for the victims of the wars. It's a solemn place. Especially at mornings.
  • I loved this temple because of the magrstic buddah sculpture, definitely worth visiting
  • A recently built war memorial of Japanese soldiers. Quite scenic but not much interesting for history seekers though
  • For 300 yen to enter it was really nice. You get an incense to place down. The giant Buddha is really nice and there are a lot of small buildings around. You can go inside the main temple from the stairs at the back to see a lot more statues/icons. To the back right side there is a world war 2 memorial as well for the unknown solider and it has names of lots of other country's soldiers who passed during the war. There is also containers of sand from the different countries involved in the war. A nice place to see.
  • Nice quiet place with a huge bouddha in honour of the unknown soldiers of the Second World War. Not in a mint condition but worth a quick visit. Entrance ¥300.

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.
