    View in Kyoto City on a hill overlooking the city from the mountains in the West, because it is different from. Lost in meditation, in a quiet environment and the majestic pine! Spring water in baptism.

    We visited the temple and then searched for on Google maps near a famous Temple, it was the "Temple". It was a climb is very close, the road leading to the main gate in the car quite a distance away. And dive into the splendid Temple temple name was displayed prominently in front of the temple. Western variant thirty-three no. 20 temple's Gohonzon is the Kannon. French give their hand to anyone, and the reputation of the blessing given the story became famous too. Is the "blessing does not fall" by people all over the world know the scene survived the bus seem miraculous in the great Hanshin-Awaji earthquake, the bus driver had good kongobu-ji Temple amulet. Applicants wishing to visit prospective students there. Other national monument "Matsu" and Boardwalk, not to be missed was filled.

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.
