We had a quick look round this historic temple, located just off the shopping streets! To be honest, it's nothing amazing, but still worth a quick look if you're in the area.

This isn't a necessary visit unless you are a history enthusiast interested in sengoku-era figures and Oda Nobunaga. It is a small temple with a memorial shrine to Nobunaga and a small on-site museum. There is no fee to enter the temple to see the memorial shrine. The entrance is on a side street and takes some time to find if you are walking from the metro station. For those who have read a lot about Nobunaga, visiting the shrine added a real historical weight and dimension to the person, making him more than just a legend. The museum is small and could be completed in 30 min. Not a must-see, but if you don't mind the entry fee and have a bit of extra time, why not? It houses some historical katana and other related artefacts. Ask the staff for an English handout which has the explanations of all the items.

Honnoji has some significance for me as a lover of history, such that it was an important part of my trip. Unfortunately, I arrived rather late and was only able to go around the grounds. That said, it's a really peaceful place despite being in the middle of a shopping area, letting you take in the rest of the temple at your leisure.

This temple area is open to the public on several sides of the Main Street or Teramachi in Kyoto. We just had breakfast and decided to walk in. We really didn't know what it was. We went into the building and we saw a samurai warrior armor and decided to pay the fee and go up to the 2nd floor. It was not a large museum and I only read about 4 items that were translated otherwise we just walked through and we were done in 10 minutes. A steep price to pay for that. The rest of the grounds you can walk and visit the temple. Fairly basic. Don't know if I would make this a recommendation unless you need to see Nobunaga history. (To Travel Is To Live)
