The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It is one of the many temples facing Uraderamachi-dori and is the southernmost. The principal image of the temple is Amida Nyorai, and it is also a Jodo sect temple.

都の再配置計画とかを画策した豊臣秀吉が創建以来の地元との縁起を断ち切らせて意味もなく集めた寺院の一つです。浄土宗寺院だけでもこの周辺(裏寺町通界隈)には16寺もあります。本尊は浄土宗なので阿弥陀如来様です。

河原町通から一筋西の裏寺町通の南にあります。ちょうどOPAの裏になるでしょうか。浄土宗のお寺ですが一般には公開されていません。桃山時代に秀吉の政策でこちらに移転しました。一昨年の秋に本堂が特別公開されました。御本尊は阿弥陀如来像でした。

河原町駅近くの裏寺町通りはお寺がたくさんあります。そのうちの1つです。一番南側にあります。訪れた時は門も閉じていて、中の様子がよくわかりませんでしたが、浄土宗のお寺とのことです。

裏寺町通にある浄土宗ののお寺です。とくにお参りも出来ませんので、ただ通り過ぎました。心も洗い浄められません。

阪急京都線の河原町駅の北側に歩いて数分のところにある小道沿いの小さなお寺ですが、山門も閉まっていて説明板もないので、どんなお寺か、よくわかりません。

新京極通りの東隣のところにあります。歩いていてたまたま見つけました。周囲はお店や公園などがあり、人通りが多い所です。お寺は中は入れないようでした。外から見ただけです。お寺は静かな雰囲気でした。

賑やかな河原町通りから一本西の通り、裏寺町通りにある浄土宗の寺院です。目の前がスーパーホテル。以前京極東宝があった跡地ですね。裏寺町通りには他にも寺院が何軒かあります。拝観は出来ませんでした。

周囲は塀で囲まれていましたが、山門自体は開かれて境内を望む事が出来ました。正面に本堂を配した境内となっていましたが、後側のビルが目立ち都会の寺院風と云えそうでした。
