    Yangwon's heard from the Tokyo Academy instructor. Sounds like a Japanese Bush Warbler and the walk from the known as the 'uguisu張ri Hall' but than tawaraya sotatsu's works is that the story is memorable. Traces of the blood ceiling certainly had impact. (Therefore still be fresh blood marks all over the place, and said the bodies of the warriors had been neglected until mid-September, from remains of summer August tear towards the Toyotomi forces at the battle of Fushimi castle called the prelude to the battle of Sekigahara, Tokugawa Torii mototada following 1000 people and defend the Castle fell to the last corridor between a ceiling and the memorial service for). Originally concubine of Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Yodo, father of Azai Nagamasa and his grandfather Azai hisamasa Toyotomi age is over 21 times for the anniversary of the death of Hideyoshi hope is founded, but so was 弔wa of Toyotomi Hideyori and Yodo by two generations Shogun Tokugawa Hidetada wife, sources Hospital (sister of Yodo River). I feel the complex causal. Heavy 10 minutes.

    It seems to Temple temple was founded by Dian, Asai Nagamasa to Toyotomi ruin after rebuilt by its sister River, the asylum. It is derived from feel the historical pattern of the warring States. Tawaraya sotatsu is nice.

    Can see paintings of tawaraya sōtatsu's visitors, attracted by blood ceiling, just around the corner, double the fun. May's a bit bright and easy to see, but not how to save.

    Small temple with hundreds years old bloody footprints and stains on the ceiling! (It was once the floor in another residence) It is all Japanese, but there was a nice guy explaining it in broken English. Highly recommended.

    Don't pay to enter the two room tour, it's not in English. But the ceiling is made out of the floor where samurai's bleed to death at Fushimi Castle, creepy!

    What the curious temple itself is very good, and built by Toyotomi towards upstream side Temple, married Tokugawa that is reconstructed. Temple name originates from the cost of Azai Nagamasa. But you've got to shut the Gates himself as a tourist destination in the minor even one minute late at home and made him go over the bolt, drive home, and then we to do? Level said. Very beautiful garden is not dwelling on blood ceiling is not to be missed. Said blood ceiling uses a Torii mototada on his position, compared to other blood ceiling, hand-shaped leg type blood reservoir trail pretty fresh. There is something heartfelt hands together.

    Time went on. I went in looking for blood ceiling, tawaraya sōtatsu fusuma, was quite impressive. Might want to explain each room maybe priest do you feel tell each time in a radio-cassette recorder, so bring a spare time.

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.
