Decided to avoid crowds by visiting more out of the way temples, so took bus 207 from to the Tofuku-ji Temple stop, near the First Red Cross Hospital (I should mention that I bought a very useful book, Exploring Kyoto: On Foot in the Ancient...More
This is one of the largest Zen Buddhist Temples in Kyoto. The temple complex is very large. We went through former monks living quarters, the Tsutenkyo Bridge and Kaisando Hall. The gardens are particularly nice. Views of the bridge and from the bridge are nice....More
After visiting fushumi inari, we walked back towards the city and stopped here to take a look at the grounds.

As with most visitors to Kyoto we visited the Fushimi Inari temple, then we chose to walk to this temple afterwards. The contrast between the two is huge. Although the Fushimi is a famous and impressive temple with its Torris etc it is crowded and...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.
