Toji Temple is not on the regular route for tour buses. As a result, the crowds are much smaller. Although it is a bit out of the way, we were able to walk there easily. It is well-worth the visit! The temple is rich with history and tradition, and has an outstanding treasure house nearby. The two temple halls feature an amazing array of religious statues and other objects; the buildings themselves are considered masterpieces. The Toji pagoda is reportedly the tallest in Japan. The gardens are lovely; we were able to see the cherry blossoms during our visit, which helped frame many of our pictures.
