Find the main area by walking up the steep pedestrianised hill by the car park.
* Konjikido (the Golden Hall) is amazing - not least in the accomplishments of people so long ago. It's housed behind a glass wall, but that's fair enough given how fragile it must be. There's an audio description that comes over the loud speakers (and is available in English).
* The museum is also worth a look - the gold writing of sutras on blue paper is particularly impressive.
* It's possible to walk through the hills to motsu-ji, but beware the bears! Highly unlikely to see one, but they have periodic boards which you should hit with a mallet to frighten them off just in case.
Entry is 800 yen, and worth it. There are also audio guides for a further 500 yen.
