    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.

    Awarded the individuals we have quite some time and it took time. Because the group is 40 people on a scale he wrote book, white robe and axes were going about 60 and Don... two officials? (Monks? ) In the side goes on and on because it does not correspond to the individual had been addressed, but this degree until.... Then if you say this is one of my personal for (at most 7-8 people so) already in two organizations for you to... flexible, but... recently the temple companies kind of like or say no, again a little General firms with flexible response, at times, be noted in the management and should be. Precincts in Basho's pond and Katsura tree view so no waiting... time was boring. Admission fee is 500 yen (ago was 400 Yen--) would appreciate from everybody is paying so that's why I'm writing up a stamp, so ride on the trend of the times. But simply raising seems on the tide.... Only here's your idol worship KaiRo, and prostate stunning bodhisattva Kannon.

    Visit the saigoku pilgrimage of 33 temples. Beside the temple, the goddess of mercy of the 33 temples can be viewed. Also of Matsuo Basho "furuike ya...", is born in the pond of the temple here. Station out shuttle 17 days each month, so had watered in, is recommended for this day.

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.
