Not one of my favorite temples or gardens, just not that interesting, but "Nenne's" garden across the street is quite lovely.

This is a small Zen temple compound where all it’s features have been carefully integrated to create a sense of calm and beauty. Even the narrow flight of steps leading up to the temple has that quality. There is the rock garden, pond, a wooden bridge across the pond and in the hillside behind, a small bamboo groove.

This is a therapy for those who are looking for a quiet and peaceful time. Even though the entrance is a little expensive, it will worth your time and money.

Entrance fee Y600 Done a few shrines and temples today, so getting a bit over it. This one was good for the immaculately kept gardens. Also there were some interesting pictures of the bad characters and omens from Japanese culture. The english with these was quite good.

Kyoto is by far,y favourite city in the world - so there's no surprises that I loved this temple and the whole are a surrounding it. What an excellent casual stroll and another place full of history!
