We accidentally found this place as we walked from Kiyomizu-Dera temple to Maruyama Park. Entrance fee is JPY300. Treat it as a donation to the temple. Nothing much to see other than offer some prayers here.

If you are there on 18th, you might get lucky to see the Ritual of Yamabushi. See some photos. Otherwise you have tons of other reviews.

Ok place to visit but a bit tired. Friendly staff and it didn't take long to walk around but with a little effort it could be much cleaner and pleasant.

Came on a Sunday after noon. Not much tourist or crowd. Very quiet place. One can visit the body inner Kannon statue but is pretty dark inside with minimum lightings.

We have visited this spot late at noon and decided not to enter the site this time. We just took a few photos on this 24M high budda and looked around the temple from the entrance. Really a quiet place without much visitors.
