After seeing so many beautiful temples, I found this one to be a bit underwhelming. I would probably prioritize other sites.

We’ve been twice so far and will likely go again before our trip is finished. The grounds are beautiful and the museum featured an artist/art style I’ve never heard of before. Once a month there is a market selling a variety of goods and snacks.

I walked in the beautiful grounds of this temple. There was a fair and it was great to watch Japanese toddlers and their mums singing and playing in the sun. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Kyoto. Easily accessible by bus.

We visited it early morning before taking our train, and it was a delicious experience. After the visit, we felt energized and relaxed. For many it's not one of the main stops, but it's worth a visit of 30-6 minutes.

Southern Kyoto
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,
