This temple was absolutely the most amazing place I visited while in Japan. It’s off the beaten path. You walk past a large lotus flower patch on your way in. You climb hundreds of stairs, each step enfolding you into the quiet sounds of the...More

We really liked this place. Beautiful garden that would be fantastic in autumn. Great views to Kyoto. 500 yen entrance fee, but we enjoyed it. Good 30/40 minutes.

This is a beautiful place to enjoy autumn colours. Nearly the entire compound was shrouded in red, orange and gold. It is also less crowded than the other Arashiyama attractions, and quieter.
