Shimogamo Jinja
#35 of 1,019 Sights & Landmarks in Kyoto
But unlike Kiyomizu-dera or Nijo Castle, each building in the shrine is small and doesn’t offer spectacular view.
This simple Shinto shrine is twin to the Kamigamo jinja and both are UNESCO world heritage sites.

Heian Shrine
#58 of 1,019 Sights & Landmarks in Kyoto
The garden has a long lake and you go through different areas with fantastic views of mature trees, many flowering plants (cherry, azalea, hydrangea,..) and manicured Japanese maples.
In different from other places, there is large and beatiful distant view against the mountains, very quiet and peaceful space, which is changing what and how people look and feel every season.

You can enjoy a cup of tea on a tatami overlooking the breathtaking view of the garden, which is much nicer than any touristic tea ceremony to my opinion...
Small enough to have a 'cosy' feel yet large enough to allow a view of expansive space afforded by the 'borrowed scenery' concept.

After formalities you gather at the entrance of the gardens and you will view some magnificent buildings, some decorated with classic vermillion colour and gold.
But it you find they're open and accepting visitors, best take full opportunity and go! They've got a well marked route tourists can follow and almost every building on site has a helpful information sign put up n...

It is much smaller but really beautiful with the magical garden, cute turtles in the pond and beautiful view from the veranda of the Main Hall of the temple onto so called two-dimensional garden with a Crane and T...
It is so quiet compared to the main sites, but very beautiful, with all the iconic aspects of the Japanese temple garden: Zen rock garden, pond of koi carp and turtles, moss covered rocks and trees.
Konkai Komyoji Temple
#71 of 1,019 Sights & Landmarks in Kyoto
