The Buddha statues really are an impressive sight but I was let down by two things, the first was that we aren't actually allowed to take any photos of the Buddah's. While I understand this as the site is a very sacred religious and traditional site, I question why then there is a fee to enter the Hall?.The second let down was that there isn't much in the vicinity of the area - with other sites there are always food vendors, souvenirs, trinkets etc on offer which give it a lively and cheerful atmosphere, this seemed a little out of the way and didn't have any of the above. However, it was only a 20 minute walk from Kyoto Station and back into the hustle and bustle of Kyoto life!
