  • Don’t pay into see this attraction. I’ve see so many ‘Giant Buddha’ on my travels. Yip, it a well carved statue, but you can see it from outside the gates without having to pay a single Yen. I think b...  more »
  • A large statue that you can see from a distance. But if you go into the temple you can breathe the atmosphere of the place: peace, serenity, meditation ... It depends what you are looking for in a "journey": live it soaking into the reality of the country or how many "I was there!" The best memories we have them if we live it.

  • ¥300 's spiritual voice ticket, which is a 24-metre-high and two-strong Japanese martyrs war Memorial, also houses 12. There are not many visitors to the spiritual mountain, and it is a pleasure to enjoy the sound of the visitors.

  • Worth a quick visit. Tribute to the unknown soldier is not well-maintained at all which is very surprising specially from a Japanese standard point of view.
  • Modern sculpture not worth ¥300, entrance through the parking lot - with the corresponding heat in summer...
  • 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.
  • 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

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.
