A refreshing change from the crowded temples, we visited on an afternoon and was quite empty and Serene. I would recomend it because it such a lovely temple, small and has free entrance. If you are on the philosophers walk it's worth a stroll through!

Thank Zoe k

Just 10 minutes walk away from the crowded Ginkaku-ji Temple, we found this wonderfully peaceful temple where it was a pleasure to just stroll and take in the site at our own pace.

This temple is less touristy than others. It is quiet and peaceful. Beautiful to walk around for half an hour or so.
