  •  On the narrow road down at Nagaoka inter a 10th circle beyond the temple since I was closer to the good kongobu-ji Temple was steep; Good kongobu-ji Temple is located quite high, the view from here is great.  Come to West views of the southern part of Kyoto Prefecture.  The 6 books in the garden of my house already passe, but here is high altitude Fortunately, are at their best now. Good kongobu-ji Temple are proud as seasonal flowers. Truly good, such as when you could not see the cherry blossom time is busy, it's not it.  From may have missed with the unions and various Dang Yamauchi of Kyoto view treasure tour. I visited 6/29 on the first day of the trip to Kyoto. Hydrangea time good kongobu-ji Temple was my wife would like. After this we intend to enjoy the Ayu sweetfish hiranoya in. A little luxury is also a 40th wedding anniversary.  It is meant to be a thank you to my wife ever done. Enshrined deity of the temple, overlooking the mountain goodness kongobu-ji Temple in large slope fully blooming hydrangeas that could.  Was overlooking the most hydrangeas Yamauchi called 10000 books at a time.  Hydrangeas planted in layout thoughtful gardeners is beyond the level of good or very good, excellent in space was.  And said that was not on my bad foot, but I from have enjoyed distant wife hydrangea flower ring able to happily watching the tour of the Park to see the spinning. Wife watching in the distance watching hydrangeas and planted there weeping.  Cherry blossom season is surely nice to one person would be. And a little back in the 600-year-old pine are laid the appearance along the earthen wall. It is a natural monument "Matsu".  I like to garden and bonsai pruning were the attractions I also throw it away easily. Happy with my wife admiring the hydrangea descended the mountain.

  • On the outskirts of Western Kyoto because public transportation is not so good. Is worth just go close your eyes at that point. Various temples around the temple, and Yamaichi from the splendid main gate while the shrine will be to exercise their good and impressive (laughs). Artistic sights such as Matsu and Lotus Hisashi Academy historic site Garden is good!

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.
