Karamon is a National Treasure supposed to be opened for the Emperors only. The combined entry ticket allowed visitors to view the internal parts of the temple. It was really impressive to stroll around the internal part of the temple but unluckily not much sakura...More
Karamon of Daigoji Temple is a national treasure. It is of course worth taking a look. Before, this gate was only open to receive the envoys of the emperor.

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.
