    Dominated by the enormous Buddha is a place of peace while visiting there was a function so it was even more exciting. There is a picturesque small memorial dedicated to the fallen of World War II.

    Walking along Higashiyama area and East you will see the big statue. Kodai-ji Temple, sacred mountain History Museum near the little stop might be good.

    This temple goes unnoticed until you see in the distance the great statue of Ryozen Kannon, is on the way if you go from elTemplo Kiyomizu-dera to Maruyama Park, so I think that it is worth making a short stop to enjoy the view. The entrance slopes 200 yen, and the temple is dedicated to the soldiers who died during the second world war, inside, enclosure is not very big but it has some references, aside from the big head statue. For example, has a room, to the right of the main, where they are exposed in display cases, many containers with all the military cemeteries of the world arena. A curious and different Temple.

    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.
