  • No. 12 Temple. From way down around you in the parking lot and up the road and around. Any car hard enough sometimes find here also walked. In the Hall next to the pond "pond or shown a slight jump, and" of monument there. During the quiet is solemn.

  • Western 12 constructed Temple of the"square (Iwama mountain)". Is a Buddhist temple located in Iwama in the mountains in belly of the 443 m above sea level, located on the border of Kyoto, Uji, and Otsu City, Shiga Prefecture. Environment is not very large. Admission admission is not or will come some people forget and then charge you knocked at the main hall in main pay system is also raised on? Should the system a little neat isn't it? I thought. Worshipping a statue of senjyukannonbosatsu in Mie, zushi's length 15 cm, it is known as the "lightning Division yin", "perspiration Kannon" "good-luck charm Kannon" "Bokeh enclosed Kannon". So there were a lot of Maple autumn season looks good.

  • Driving a car, I visited 6/22. Located in the mountainous Center, transportation is inconvenient. Relying on navigation, arrives. Matsuo Basho's "dive into the pond and the frog" clause, it is born here. Admission fee: 500 yen is required. Parking fee was no longer needed. Nokyo-Sho, to pray in the main hall from follow the signs to proceed toward the back, and 1,000-year-old said Katsura tree branch was expanded very much. Tokai road nature trail signs and is connected to the on the Go-Daigo.

Where to stay in Otsu

You'll find a scattered few accommodations across Otsu, primarily close to Otsu train station. The options located in this area tend to be fairly standard hotels, designed for businesspeople rather than tourists, with simple rooms, pools, and onsite restaurants. Closer to the lake, things get a little more interesting, with some more traditional guesthouses to choose from. Going anti-clockwise round the lake, you'll find some clusters of accommodations close to the primary attractions, such as hot springs. Then again, you can always stay in Kyoto and take a day visit to Otsu.
