The 1000 Statues at around 1.5m tall each is magnificent and so are the statues of the gods and guardians. Looking at them makes you feel connected to Japan religious history and there so many other artifacts on show. Its a pity that no cameras are allowed and don't even try sneaking a video cam, everyone who visits the temple respect the rules in place and warning signs are placed that if you are caught taking pictures, they will confiscate your photography device. Like a army camps, signs are placed to warn visitors they they will spot check your devices at will. Just grab a copy of the brochure and postcards for memories. By the way, the entrance fee cost 600yen. There are buses from Kyoto station and the same bus goes to Kiyomizudera and Ginkakuji. If you are taking trains, take Keihan Line and stop at Shichijo and walk 100-200m up a slope.
