We have visited Toji by early April this year. It was located about 20 minutes walking distance from JR Kyoto Station. Payment to visit the internal parts of Pagoda and Temple proper was required. The whole temple compound was large but quiet for visiting. Nice...More

We visited late in the afternoon and the whole area was quiet with a pretty atmosphere. The pagoda itself is really impressive. It's the tallest one in Japan. Recommended.

Although it was a cold winters day with occasional snow flurries this is a beautiful place to visit. The pagoda is amazing at five stories and the serenity of the place is inspiring. Highly recommend a visit.

The five story pagoda here is just beautiful and on such a mighty scale. The inside of the pagoda and the other temple buildings are equally as amazing. There were hardly any other tourists either. Don't miss out!

Southern Kyoto
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
