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

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

Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji
