  • So entering from the back of the main hall and pretty tough uphill, going in and out from the entrance side is recommended. Admission is free, but some area has to pay. Autumn was crowded with many people.

  • To appreciate the maple, recommend that you can put the South Zen temple, Yong-Tang, true as the church in the same day schedule. There are so many crowds in the hall, and maple leaves are very beautiful and red.

  • Shinnyodo is often bypassed by tourists in favor of Eikando & other popular temples so its less crowded even in peak autumn season. you can stroll through the garden leisurely, sip Jap tea and dessert...  more »

  • Beautiful free temple. You can freely enter inside. Lot of maple trees too.
  • You can watch one of the most beautiful red "Kouyo" (autumn leaves) in Kyoto
  • It a stunning place to visit , especially in November
  • Came here in winter so it looked nothing like the amazing photos you see of it in autumn. Still, possibly my favourite place in Kyoto. Hardy any people and just so serene.
  • Must visit place near to Kyoto station. Enjoyable garden place.

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.
