“Nice and peacefull”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

very nice temple, quiet, large... a bit far from Kyoto center, but if you visit the nearby Bamboo street, it is definitely worth going to this temple.

“One of the most underrated temples”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Daika is huge and with great variety. Notice the beautiful entry, then the ikebana display and then the Saga mums (Kiku). Seek out the red lacquer buildings. Many fine Kano style screens. Not an easy location, need a taxi or driver car. Worth several hours.

“You can't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

A beautiful temple surrounded by nature and cherry trees! A very nice place to visit because you can walk through temple's area and admire the great scenery! Daikaku-ji really worths your attention!
