We walked to this temple to primarily visit the small bamboo grove. Unfortunately this was closed for restoration. The temple itself is still beautiful with many ancient gravestones, but just be aware the bamboo grove might be closed when you come (I’m not sure how...More

The leaves in November are crazy beautiful. The moment I walked into the grounds I felt the serenity of this place just take over. There is also a "mini" bamboo Grove you can take pictures in which aren't nearly as crowded as the main bamboo...More

Definitely put Adashino on your list. A while back, they gathered all the tomb stones dotting Arashiyama and brought them to this place. The tombstones are up to 900 years old and I heard they were for people that died with no family. There is...More

The temple is lost in a quiet hill, and we reached it by Taxi. It is a must see, with its stones scattered throughout the temple grounds. We missed the nice long way back but it is something you should do, trying to visit other...More

At the time of our mid-morning visit, we were the only people walking around, peacefully absorbing this mystical place. There are thousands of ancient lichen-covered stone statues in the cemetery area, each placed in memory of a deceased person. This is a well known Buddhist...More

been there at the peak of momiji season, it's outstanding even for arashiyama. the temple has it's own bamboo forest which is far more interesting and less crowded than the famous one in sagano.

I came here because the pictures on TripAdvisor made the temple look great and the stones looked huge. I got there (which was a bit far off from Arashiyama) and the stones were a smaller than I imagined. The garden around was nice but nothing...More

Western Kyoto
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

Response from お遍路さん京都市 | Reviewed this property |
足の短い日本人が普通に歩いて約30分です。でも、途中にも興味を示すような寺社や場所が必ずあると推測しますので、写真を撮りながら行くならもっと時間は必要です。健脚の人がわき見しないでさっさと歩くと20分でも到着可能です。
