We took the extra few steps up to Adashino Nenbutsu-ji and were pleasantly surprised with what we found. It isn’t very far off the path (1 minute?) but few people seem to make it up the short walk. There is a small admission fee to...More
After going through the crowds at the bamboo grove it was a nice break to walk all the way here. It was a 500 yen tax to get in. I am not entirely sure it is worth it now that the bamboo grove is being...More
I spent an afternoon with my wife and we hiked up to this interesting temple as we heard it was off the beaten tracks and beautiful.
The entrance way was a perfect picture spot with the moss covering the wall and nobody around when we...More
A very interesting and unique place to visit! You can start your stroll at the Arashiyama bridge and then go via Tenryu-ji temple and Sagano bamboo grove visiting many outstanding temple complexes on the hills and the come to Adashino Nenbutsuji Temple that is situated...More
We walked to this temple to primarily visit the small bamboo grove. Unfortunately this was closed for restoration. The temple itself is still beautiful with many ancient gravestones, but just be aware the bamboo grove might be closed when you come (I’m not sure how...More
Had read good reviews and wanted to visit something a little different. Bus from bamboo forest takes you to site and a 5 minute walk from bus stop. This is an amazing site. It is a cemetery with lovely grounds. There is an excellent bamboo...More
The grounds of the temple are covered with stones statues for the souls of dead here. Pictures not allowed in that area, but you can take them from farther aside. There is a short bamboo path with no people in the shot. Taxi to Arashiyama...More
The leaves in November are crazy beautiful. The moment I walked into the grounds I felt the serenity of this place just take over. There is also a "mini" bamboo Grove you can take pictures in which aren't nearly as crowded as the main bamboo...More
Definitely put Adashino on your list. A while back, they gathered all the tomb stones dotting Arashiyama and brought them to this place. The tombstones are up to 900 years old and I heard they were for people that died with no family. There is...More
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and
impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.
