    15 minutes from Kyoto station on foot, a pretty place with a beautiful garden. Nothing fancy, to visit if you have time. Admission is charged (500 yen per adult).

    A very worthwhile temple to visit if Kinkaku-ji and Ryoan-ji prove too crowded. It has a very intricate and compact stroll garden as well as a dry landscape garden. Founded by the Ashikaga shogunate, it has a small hall with statues of all of the rulers. Almost completely ignored by tourists, you can enjoy the quiet atmosphere even though the surrounding area is unremarkable and the neighboring university buildings intrude a bit.

    Very beautiful and cozy Japanese garden. There's located little far away from the central Kyoto and difficult to get there.

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.
