Along the way you'll see thousands of torii gates and even more cemetery monuments and shrines framed by a backdrop of beautiful trees, foliage, and sometimes views of Kyoto.
Beautiful! my favorite temple! the colors and the view is all amazing!! is definitely a MUST if you go to Japan.

Kiyomizu-dera Temple Higashiyama
The temple itself is awe inspiring and the main platform offers some great views of Kyoto and the surrounding area There's also an incredible cemetery that sits alongside the temple worth exploring.
Set on the green hills of Kyoto, the breathtaking view of the skyline, serenity of the forest, and the gorgeous temple and pagoda make this our most memorable Japanese temple.

One of the most incredible sights in Kyoto with gorgeous water features (Pavilion Pond, Carp Rock), beautiful gardens, an awesome Tea House and of course The Golden Pavilion with its three styles of architecture.
... - the serene lake with temple reflecting beautifully on the surface surrounded by a zen garden, perfectly manicured trees and grounds, koi fish swimming to and fro, tea in a forest, and Buddhist site for prayer.

I would highly recommend it for authentic view into the Japanese tradition and culture.

Atomic Bomb Dome Hiroshima
Amazing experience going to see the Atomic Bomb Dome, it is truly incredible and very humbling to see such an important historic site.
Excellent plagues are set out with detailed information and when viewed from the Peace Museum, is a view that is unmissable.

It was lovely.. enjoyed walking through all the deer to get to the great buddha hall and gardens.. nice complex, cute deer , nice shopping and great sights, what more could you want.
This giant Buddha is Japan's largest and is really a sight to see! Make sure to see the Buddha from all angles, especially the side view as you can really appreciate the massive size by getting a little closer to it.

Taikoiwa Yakushima-cho
The view is impressive and the walk up and down covers the most natural and beautiful terrain.
I've travelled a lot (see my profile) and this was one of the best views I've ever seen.
Really impressive... quite the best temple in Kyoto in my view, the prayer halls are just out of this world.. the gardens superb... luckily its a bit of a hidden gem as its a slightly off the beaten track and seem...
... has everything combined in one: beautiful gardens, a small pond/ lake, amazing architecture with 3 different temples inside, gods statues and a small resting room on a hill with great overlooking views of Kyoto.
Itsukushima Shrine Hatsukaichi
... against lush green of the mountains and blue of the ocean The shrine itself has a quiet yet ubiquitous presence Explore the island's many walks, temples, shrines and gardens Views from Mount Misen are spectacular
Apart from being naturally attractive and well-worth the ferry trip from Hiroshima for its scenic attractions alone, there’s plenty of man-made “sights” to see and visit: the Daiganji Temple, dedicated to Goddess...

Shosha are still very worth the visit for the experience, the history, art, and culture lessons, for the fantastic view of Himeji, for the most delicious vegetarian noodles I’ve tasted, and the list goes on.
We enjoyed our walk past so many sites (and sights) from the temples, to giant trees, to ponds, to burial memorials, to moss gardens - so many details.
The Atomic Bomb Dome, the flame, the memorial plaques in different languages to commemorate the importance of this site in our contemporary History.
Beautifully curated, each landmark has a poignant story behind it and lets you immerse in all that is (or was) Hiroshima.

Fantastic views of the Tori...try to see it when the tide is in and also out as the whole place takes on a different view with the change in the tide.

Sanjusangendo Temple Higashiyama
A hall of a thousand bigger than life statues a definite site to see, amazingly preserved and intricately beautiful statues.
This UNESCO heritage site is one of special interest if you can be there the Sunday (in mid January) when they commemorate the traditional archery contest through the one long back hallway, dating back centuries.

Magnificent sights
Beautiful landmark in the middle of this solid hike
Ritsurin Garden Takamatsu
Even in summer when the garden is mostly a palette of greens, textures, and shapes, it is well worth visiting for its superb design and great views.
The composition of landscape, lakes, bridges, tea houses, view points, the Sakura at spring and the autumn colors are all perfect.

Crossing the bridge shortly after dawn and soaking in the utter serenity of the Shrine is something truly special, and the reverence with which locals treat the site only adds to the charm.
We found it a pleasure to visit Ise Grand Shrine, one of the most important religious and historical sites in Japan, even for those of different religion.
At the top, simply beautiful and absolutely fantastic, the views overlooking the bridge which we had just crossed, and all the surrounding areas.
Cape Kamui Shakotan-cho
This wind swept lighthouse is a 30 minute up and down climb with stunning views of the coast line and the turquoise waters of the sea.
After return to Kamuimisaki, remember walk to the view deck which able to view the whole Cape Kamui was so beautiful!

Hasedera Temple Sakurai
But, as the video's title says, visiting Hasedera in any season, it can offer you tranquility and awesome views of covered walkways, buildings, and Buddha besides flowers and Nature.
The view from the landing was wonderful with all the autumn colours in the mountains in front so was well worth the effort of the climb to the top.

Amanoyasu Kawara Takachiho-cho
... who have added to the place stone by stone !! On the way back, there is a terrace restaurant called Amaterasu (how else...) where you can have coffee or ice cream with a great view over the valley and river.
I am usually skeptical when I hear the word “magical” used to describe a site.
