  • Walking after visit sumoto Temple, Lotus Temple, has moved. But leaves a clear path in the middle 20 minutes. During migration and in shape to go around, there are several entrance points. You can see the leaves between the shrine and the round. In the tea ceremony. Any time in this area by moving from the Lotus Temple, place a little to PASS here without time because apart from other places, from Heron shrine could either place iron. If you have booked the shugakuin and is fit better on day of admission after you.

  • Sekizan Zen-in is situated in Shugaku-in ( the Northeast of Kyoto ). It is a direction from which the evil influences are likely to come. According to the yin-yan philosophy the temple gate is called "Omote Kimon" (Outer demon gate) which is used as protection from the bad luck coming through the gates. The temple is known for being a part of the pilgrimage to the "Seven Lucky Gods" and its profound history of more than 1100 years. It was founded by Enrin in 888 AD it belongs to a Tendai sect of Buddhism unique to Enryakuji Temple located on Mt. Hiei. TGM Kyoto Guide

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.
