Here is a large temple of Shingon sect with superb gardens and architecture. The interior of the Sambo-in has fantastic painted screens and a wonderful garden. There were few visitors on the Friday afternoon I was there, and nothing like the crowds of the city...More
This beautiful temple is a tad bit off the beaten tourist scene in Kyoto and a little harder to access but it is well worth a stop. It is home to one of the oldest structures in Kyoto, a five-storied pagoda.
beautiful temple area with a garden calming your mind just by staring at it...in the upper part you find a serene pond with a lovely red bridge leading over it...all this surrounded by a forrest...sadly smaller secluded parts had been severely damaged by the last...More
In searching for somewhere in Kyoto off the beaten track, this temple complex gets a number of mentions. Visited today (26/Sep/18). 15 mins walk from Daigo subway station.
Arrived to find out that the largest section (Shimo Daigo) is closed due to typhoon damage. Kami...More
We went in the Autumn, around the time the leaves were changing colors. The views were breathtaking, just as the photos you see on the web. Didn't go inside any of the buildings, but the Bentendo Hall, pictured on the left, was as picture perfect...More
Albeit is was very early in the Sakura season, I gather that it was extremely quiet during our current visit. There were very few other people there.
The temple is a reasonable walk from the metro, and all uphill. It isn't hard to find. There...More
It's a bit of a bus drive from Kyoto, but there's an extra fast bus right to the temple. And due to its location it's not very crowded. Definitely worth a visit. There's different tickets for the museum and the temple garden.
This is a huge temple complex and a World Heritage Site. There are several temples in this complex with a pretty pagoda, beautiful garden and pond. One of the best spots in Kyoto to see autumn leaves. Highly recommended! You would need a few hours...More
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the
mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.

Trip Advsor does not allow links so I can't post it, but the temple site includes a Guide to the area. Google World Heritage site Kyoto Daigo-ji Temple. Also, another T advisor posted an excellent detail of the access. Plz... More
