깊어져만 가는 가을 그대 고민하지말고, 지금 떠나라. 붉게 물든 교토의 가을이 당신을 기다린다. 深まるばかり行く秋 君悩まないで、今出発せよ。 赤く染まった京都の秋があなたを待っている。 A deepening fall Don't worry about yourself, just leave now. The autumn of Kyoto, which is stained with red color, awaits you.

My wife and I enjoyed our visit to this Temple during our day trip to this area from Kyoto. The gardens are excellent. Serene and tranquil.
Jojakko-ji temple is a short walk from the Arashiyama bamboo grove. It is better to club the visit to this place with your walk through the bamboo grove. This place is beautiful with moss-covered lands and well-maintained gardens. Please note - there are steep steps...More
