While this is a very nice temple-shrine complex, what I liked best were the massive cyclopean-type walls that surround it, creating this lovely boundary of natural stone capped with beautifully trimmed greenery. The shrine itself is not exceptional, not by Kyoto standards, though it is pretty and well-maintained.

Founded by the Buddhist Sect of Jodo Shinshu, and located nearby Kiyomizu-dera Temple Complex; this place includes a big graveyard of 15,000+ tombstones, including their Sect founder. Recommended for history buffs only, this is not one of the main touristic spots in Kyoto but its worth to stop by.
