Tofuku-ji Temple, Kyoto

(4.5/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Serene and ornate, Tofuku-ji Temple operates as a traditional Zen Buddhist shrine. Erected in 1236, the temple was accurately restored in the 15th century after a devastating fire destroyed much of its structure. The temple boasts a Japanese national treasure, an imposing two-storied gate considered one of the most beautiful examples of Buddhist temple gates. Look for the temple's intricate woodwork and extensive gardens, each of which is landscaped differently to symbolize images and themes in Zen Buddhism. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Tofuku-ji Temple and many more Kyoto attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Kyoto vacation trip planner.
