    This is a small Buddhist Temple and Monastery (only 1 monk and 2 students at present), but the ultimate in authenticity. You reach it only by traveling upriver in a pole boat, then hiking up a "mounta...  more »

    Also Arashiyama and crowded with the tourist season here is quiet, calm down. Overwhelming a lot of foreign (especially Western series), the Japanese are less. Free of charge (only three times) to Bell. Also, Vista is excellent, have put the binoculars in the free. Ninna-ji Temple five-story pagoda and by far was taken with telephoto is ginkaku-ji Temple. Couldn't I see seems to be also Kiyomizu-dera. (At clear air and may be severe. )

    From its location from the interesting article on television may have name recognition out there. Towards the Kamo River, even on the left, along the River in hitachinaka uphill walk takes about 30 minutes. It is easy to walk in the promenade offers. Time becomes more and more anxious about signs of great tragedies of comes out. After a street sign to climb the mountain. Pretty inclined is again not is. No admission fee, small temples. From Ft. long-mat tatami room overlooks city of Kyoto. No talk from the priest. I have a lot of copy paper easily preached the teachings of the Buddha. It is the foreigners coming. From the temple looked good. I went to the bottom of the mountain on a rental bike.

    Nice non crowded temple. You can relax getting really nice views from Arashiyama, really nice in Autumn (also in spring I guess). The monk was really friendly an he told us some things about the temple. My favourite temple visit in Arashiyama, not the most espectacular temple, but was the best experience by far... Not only an amazing building standing in front of you and lots of people like the most famous ones.

    Amazing walk in autumn along the gorge and then a medium hard climb up to this small Zen Buddhism outpost. Stunning views across and along the gorge. Can also see Kyoto across the way. Well worth the effort to reach this serene spot. Escaping the crowds is also a big bonus. Costs 400 yen when you reach the temple. Well worth it.

    Very beautiful view of Arashiyama and Kyoto. The temple is off the beaten path and one of my Kyoto favorites! A visit is highly recommended!

    Worth the trek, very friendly staff, and free tea. Very secluded with few tourists, so peaceful.

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.
