This was my first visit to Jakkoin after many return visits to my old favourite Sanzenin in Ohara.. My husband and I were both impressed by the impact Jakkoin had on us both. It is hidden away at the end of a country lane and was revealed after climbing the entry steps. It is a small shrine set in beautiful grounds in a serene setting. It wasn't busy when we visited, however, the taxi driver who took us there from Sanzenin did say it gets very busy at peak times of the year. You can walk there from the bus stop. It took us about 20 minutes to walk back to the bus stop for our return to Kyoto. It's therefore probably 30 minutes to Jakkoin if walking from Sanzenin.
