All reviews kyoto station northern part main building moss gardens beautiful zen garden nice pictures day pass japanese culture otaru temple hydrangeas tranquility autumn visitors admission statues hill
Visiting this temple is one of my wish during Kyoto stay. Must go there if you only have a few days trip in Kyoto. Takes taxi ride 30 minutes from north part of kyoto city cost about less than 4,000JPY. Bus is also available. Stamps...More
Late autumn time being there. A beautiful and peaceful place to stay. Can enjoy nice red maple leaves and silence atmosphere. Suggest to arrange at least 3 hours and wear comfortable shoes to take a walk within it. The view up to the hill is...More
Ohara is a bit of a bus ride out from Kyoto but well worth the effort. From the bus stop just follow the crowds to the Sanzenin.. It is one of the picture postcard sights of Japan however, the extortionately expensive entrance fee does not...More
Beautiful zen garden. We came late, just one hour before closing so did not have as much time as we wanted but the good side is that there were just few pepople left so we could at least make nice pictures.
What a romantic place! It was a pleasure to spend a few hours there. We took a tour of the temples and it made a huge impression on us. Great location! You can not forget about the gardens! We highly recommend everyone to go there...More
It took us about 1 hour or so to get there from Gion area (bus 17). The regular day pass (¥600) doesn’t cover this route, so you need to pay extra fees. The temple is so peaceful and the gardens are gorgeous. Not many tourists,...More
I send everyone I know to Sanzen-in and have gone many times. The ride up the mountain is gorgeous and the walk up to the temple equally marvelous. The temple itself, sheathed in moss and magic should not be missed. This is a spot worth...More
This temple is not to be missed, even though it's a bit outside of Kyoto proper. I've been several times and it's always inspiring and magical. The gardens are unforgettable. Ohara is a delight and a unique countryside experience.
This is the place, where you just want to lay down on the ground, look at the vegetation around, then the sky, then the ever present insane Crows .... and then! Close your eyes and never wake up. It is that good.
There are taxis in the area because of tourists. It may be a case of luck as to whether there is one around when you arrive at the bus stop. It is a quiet area. I think the cabs tend to be dropping off and picking up closer... More
There are taxis in the area because of tourists. It may be a case of luck as to whether there is one around when you arrive at the bus stop. It is a quiet area. I think the cabs tend to be dropping off and picking up closer to the temples in the area. We walked from the bus stop to Sanzenin-in. It was an easy, pleasant walk. When we finished at Sanzenin in we were able to get a cab, that had just dropped people off, and we used that to go to Jakkoin. That would have been a 30 minutes walk. We then walked back to the bus stop from Jakkoin. (20 min).
