  • Is a Buddhist temple of the Obaku spent the later years Ito JAKUCHU boom from last year. Staff from the Fushimi Inari Shrine. Tomb of JAKUCHU gohyakurakan stone was dedicated by him, of course.

  • Seokbong JI gohyakurakan images drawn JAKUCHU where ogurayama JAKUCHU burned out home in his later years. Went to see the statue and grave, but was surprised by gohyakurakan number (still standing at close to 500 body) and cuteness. Had adopted as a prerequisite that I saw in Tokyo at chinzan-so gardens https://www.TripAdvisor.jp/attraction_review-g1066442-d504483-reviews-hotel_chinzanso_toyo_garden-bunyo_toyo_toyo_prefecture_anto.html?m=19904 previously close to 20 gohyakurakan moved from here, but from here, was not quite the impression. So if you like in picture unfortunately photography no photos because of the ban, jakuchū especially the Fushimi dolls like intact statues such as design should have in mind. Gohyakurakan is a little climb the stairs you climb the hill from fukakusa station, but it's worth.

  • Climbing from Inari station, came down to the Keihan fukakusa station. Temple in the temple, neither with steep gradients on the wrong side of the feet not recommended. Gohyakurakan is easy to walk to be gotten stepped on the whole slope, many ledges and tree roots. Elderly and pretty much walk know was. We pulled out between the houses on a steep uphill, narrow road until it reaches the temple on foot from inaricho station. How views are important in old buildings, have been quite good, but on the wrong road and becomes uneasy. I'm still this way different. Return, turn? Every point I think seokbong Temple here and arrow had managed to reached. Distinctive Gates is entering the small bow. Reception to the Buddha, his left hand in front and go right back to gohyakurakan. It was placed back in place with the thematic group of more is the thought or just climbing on the narrow mountain road and walk the route as follows. From the feet upward slope and Rakan's can be found. Have been weathered much do not know the original expression, chipped, cracked, MOSS-grown, shape has become blurred. Look at that as we return to the soil, covered with dead leaves and stuff. Looked strange with the whole calm because piled up over the years. I think personally, but not in a good state of preservation of works of art, good to go. And going down into the road in front of the temple was easily arrived at fukakusa station. Felt at ease from Inari station side slope and width of the road.

  • Writing the below picture JAKUCHU, priest and collaborations, produced "JAKUCHU gohyakurakan". 1 1 in the body and face is different, so is a sight to see. Temple had the ceiling painting (painting), deterioration or a leak in the roof and now are disconnected, yoshinaka Temple in Otsu City, Shiga Prefecture, located in sakyo-Ku, Kyoto-Shi Nobuyuki Temple. In the precinct, Jakuchu's grave.

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.
