Byodoin Temple, Uji
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
With a history spanning over a thousand years, Byodoin Temple serves devotees of the Pure Land Buddhism sect. The temple and its garden date back to 998 and feature the famous Phoenix Hall, depicted on the back of Japan's ten-yen coin. Unlike many nearby structures, this hall has never been destroyed, making it one of the only wooden examples of Heian period architecture in existence today.

平等院自体は､それ程良いとは思いませんでしたが 秋の紅葉の鮮やかさが素晴らしくきれいです。この時期に訪れると感動できます。But did not think equality Institute itself is a moderate intensity of fall foliage is nice and clean. Time to visit and can be moved.show original
This place is a Byodo-disappointment and is Byodo-expensive. Many temples in Kyoto offer a better ambience and experience, even some of the free ones.
One of the most beautiful Zen temples in Japan, also one of the oldest! Best to visit in the morning for perfect lighting for photos!
Ever wanted to see the 10 yen coin in real life? Well open up your purse it's right there. Byodou Temple and its surroundings isn't a terrible way to spend an afternoon or morning. Really beautiful grounds and an informative museum. Also y'know. The temple itself. That's pretty amazing.
A guide say in Japanese, but I can get the English and Korean script at the ticket office. So I can understand the Phenix hall in more detail. That's wonderful.
Good place for tourists to visit traditional japanese temple.
