Temple is small but have great view. You must have healty leg to come here since the stair is steep and need a little tracking to get to the higher area that have great view. Have free wifi :)

The temple located in Arashiyama is small but beautiful inside and we have a quiet enjoyment there by paying the entrance fee of Yen500 per person. The landscaped grounds inside are well maintained. Worth to come during sakura period.

Quiet and peaceful, worth the entrance fee. The walk from small temple to small temple was extremely relaxing and interesting. Recommend this temple.

Jojakko-ji Temple is a quaint temple on the main Arashiyama tourist route that offers a chance to escape the crowds that swarms the area. A good little enclave to explore before heading to the forest.

깊어져만 가는 가을 그대 고민하지말고, 지금 떠나라. 붉게 물든 교토의 가을이 당신을 기다린다. 深まるばかり行く秋 君悩まないで、今出発せよ。 赤く染まった京都の秋があなたを待っている。 A deepening fall Don't worry about yourself, just leave now. The autumn of Kyoto, which is stained with red color, awaits you.

Jojakko-ji temple is a short walk from the Arashiyama bamboo grove. It is better to club the visit to this place with your walk through the bamboo grove. This place is beautiful with moss-covered lands and well-maintained gardens. Please note - there are steep steps...More

If you think after Tokyo you have seen too many temples to bother with this one you're wrong. It has a dozen featured buildings, beautiful moss gardens, ancient bells and a truly contemplative atmosphere. There is also the brilliant lookout over the mountains, gardens and...More

Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best
eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved
Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji
Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea
