This was the first temple we visited in Kyoto and I was surprised by the gardens - huge, perfectly manicured gardens and a large sand garden at the entrance. It was enjoyable to walk through the grounds (you have to follow a set path) and see all the different views. There's a really pretty overlook of Kyoto. The actual temple isn't very impressive and you can't get very close. It was a good first temple to visit.
