  • This is my favorite temple garden. Not a dry Zen garden, and some construction going on, but the compositions are pretty much perfect. Balance, layers, scale, colors: somebody got everything just right here. And no crowds! I really didn't want to leave.
  • Great architecture and marvelous creation in wood!! The park and the serenity make the place a blessed one!
  • 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.
  • Tōji-in is a Buddhist temple of the Rinzai Tenryū sect located in Kita Ward, Kyoto, Japan, and one of two funeral temples (bodaiji) dedicated to Ashikaga Takauji, first shogun of the Ashikaga dynasty. Its main object of worship is Shakyamuni. ( TGM Kyoto Guide )
