4.5/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web
Bask in the elegant halls of Sanzen-in Temple, a Tendai school temple of imperial lineage, founded in 804 CE. As you enter its front gate, pass the series of connected temple buildings until you reach the kyakuden, or guest hall. Observe the displayed works of Japanese calligraphy and paintings on sliding doors, and proceed towards the traditional garden with a small pond and a hill. In the shinden, or main hall, observe the three statues of Buddhist deities, as well as a view of the entire estate covered in maple and cedar trees. Stop on Ojo Gokuraku-in Hall, which holds a statue of Amida Buddha, the temple's most prized treasure. Put Sanzen-in Temple into our Kyoto vacation generator and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Were just rhododendron flowers are at their best, the contrast of the rhododendron Garden was very clean. From the hospital room while enjoying the garden, then garden watching the garden and hospital from different directions, we walked to. I'm feeling mind at rest grows green foliage season is nice, but this season.

  • 相比京都其他热门景点,我觉得大原三千院更值得一来。虽然距离离市区稍微远了一点,可以坐公交车前往。抵达以后需要先爬一个小山,还好不是特别远。需要买票入内,但是里面的景观真是太好,各种青苔和小石雕,如果是秋天的话,红叶应该更美,强烈推荐的景点。 
  • Green Green summer and fall, Yen fall. Of course the photos come out well, it's a good idea to relax.
