“Beautiful”

Eikando Zenrinji Temple
Ranked #7 of 1,131 things to do in Kyoto
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 4, 2013

This has been my favourite temple/shrine in Kyoto. At least, during our visit in winter. Lovely rock and moss gardens, and a collection of buildings, all of which can be visited.

This is the 4th stop in the path of the Philosopher´s Walk.
Is an active temple, very nice with a beautiful Pagoda!
You can see a small lake, a smal river and some beautiful tree´s.
Don´t miss it!

I would only recommend this during the fall- it probably has one of the best foliage in the city, and that is saying a lot as Kyoto has endless amazing sites to see the foliage.

The temple is beautiful and very peaceful. The garden grounds are just gorgeous - which also means lots of competitive photographers! Be patient, this place is well worth it.

This temple was a lot quieter than some of the others I visited, and this gave it a lovely sense of meditative tranqulity (at least until some renovation equipment got started nearby!).
I enjoyed walking along the wooden corridors of the buildings as well as the garden and pond within the temple grounds.
