“Worth seeing, but there are better sites in Arashiyama”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Adashino Nenbutsu-ji is a Buddhist temple on the outskirts of Arashiyama. It is a very peaceful walk up the main road. The grounds are nice and can be viewed rather quickly. If you have walked this far from the main Arashiyama area, keep going up the hill to see Otagi-Nenbutsu-ji, that is definitely worth seeing.

“peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

This place is special. It's different to the other temples. There are less people so you can even enjoy some moment alone in the middle of the bamboo forest. It's not easy to reach, but with a map and with the help of the locals you can make it (we don't speak Japanese, but people helped us anyway).

“Interesting, but out of the way...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Not much is in English at this temple/graveyard so if you decide to go, read up on it prior to getting there, not much to see although there is an event that is held once a year which may be interresting (they light candles and put them on all of the gravestones) but I didn't see it. Not really worth going out of your way to see unless you are in the area. If you do go to this templ, it may be worth it to take a taxi there and then walk back as it is pretty far away from Sagaarashiyama station.
