The temple located in Arashiyama is small but beautiful inside and we have a quiet enjoyment there by paying the entrance fee of Yen500 per person. The landscaped grounds inside are well maintained. Worth to come during sakura period.

Quiet and peaceful, worth the entrance fee. The walk from small temple to small temple was extremely relaxing and interesting. Recommend this temple.

Jojakko-ji Temple is a quaint temple on the main Arashiyama tourist route that offers a chance to escape the crowds that swarms the area. A good little enclave to explore before heading to the forest.

Jojakko-ji temple is a short walk from the Arashiyama bamboo grove. It is better to club the visit to this place with your walk through the bamboo grove. This place is beautiful with moss-covered lands and well-maintained gardens. Please note - there are steep steps...More

Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea
