This was my 1st port of call when I went to Kyoto. I was stunned by the calmness & peace I found just walking through the grounds. I would highly recommend this temple as it's not so busy & much more quiet. I went at around 9.30am on a weekday. I instantly messaged my family telling them how strangely calm & peaceful I felt just being there. Well worth a visit, make sure you walk up the back of the gardens as the views are beautiful.
