The Silver Pavilion is surrounded by beautiful gardens - tinged with autumn colours in November - and paths which meander up and down. The paths at their height provide beautiful views of the Siliver Pavilion, as also of Kyoto.
Genkuji Temple is located near Otesuji shopping street. The temple itself is nothing special, but its entrance gate, which used to belong to Momoyama Castle, is beautiful.

Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the
mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
