This temple is one of the best ones to see in Kyoto. It's kind of a pain to get to since its not really close to anything else in Kyoto. But well worth the visit. The temple is just stunning. And the temple grounds are very "zen" and peaceful. Try going first thing in the morning or right before the temple closes in the evening to avoid the crowds.
