Higashi Hongan-ji is the Eastern temple of a pair of temples of the Nishi Buddhist order. Like many Japanese buildings, it has burned down in the past, and this complex dates from 1895, though the original was built in 1602. The buildings are austere and impressive, together giving a sense of grandeur and wonder. It is very accessible being only 10 minutes walk from the station and free

Because of its great location, we can spend our last hour of visit to Kyoto in here. The temple is quite big in size in terms of space therefore you feel very relaxed.
The scene is also quite attractive.
