  • Shōkoku-ji Temple is a large temple of Rinzai sect is counted in the 2 position of the Kyoto gozan temples were founded by Ashikaga Yoshimitsu. Present 在寺 area once as of 誇rimsenn scale is still beautiful and original and the building is a magnificent 10-is there. Wouldn't say that haunts the shōkoku-ji Temple you must participate in special entrance hall made each 2 months or so of each fall and spring semester, but many people become concerned about only the temple visit, visited the home of each. Particularly original and the garden is one of the most beautiful in Kyoto, you want to come.

Shōkoku-ji Temple itself is not allowed in special entrance only, but in a museum exhibit and special visit are conducted at the same time, so miss this! One of Kano's painted the ceiling of the main hall. Come have a chance so great! Practice that strike hands elsewhere in the main hall (? ) There.
