I continued on my way down to the beautiful Kurama temple, bought my juuzu, and then took the many many stairs down to Kurama town, where I ate a delicious lunch and then visited the Kurama Onsen.

Sanjusangendo Temple Higashiyama 2.6 mi away

Puzzling, unearthly and in some sort of way eerie… A hall lined up with one thousand cannon life size sculptures, some from the 12th century, and protected by 28 guardians deities forming an unworldly army.
This is an original ( built in 1164 AD ) wooden hall housing the gigantic seated national treasure of Buddha protected by over 1000 life size Buddhist sculptures.

Kamigamo Shrine Kyoto, Japan 7.0 mi away
#32 of 1,545 things to do in Kyoto
Because we were already in northern Kyoto on a Sunday, we decided to visit this much less frequented shrine, yet another Kyoto UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the oldest shrines in Kyoto.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and my vote is for Kamigamo.

This time, we visited there after a long walking, so we had a good rest sitting on tatami and enjoyed viewing its beautiful garden and interesting Hideki Kimura's painting on fusuma (sliding doors) inside.
It is really a very different experience from the day, very peaceful too as most tourists will try to speak softly.
