This temple was absolutely the most amazing place I visited while in Japan. It’s off the beaten path. You walk past a large lotus flower patch on your way in. You climb hundreds of stairs, each step enfolding you into the quiet sounds of the...More

This temple is so famous and popular among people for its gorgeous beauty of colored maple leaves during 2 weeks (the last 2 weeks of November) and filled with so many people in that period, however, I like this temple of the time when it's...More

I needed to climb the hill a bit, but my efforts paid off. The large hill garden of this temple is worth discovering especially in late November and early December. You won't get bored with colorful maple leaves. I also enjoyed the view of the...More
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and
impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.
