I was in the neighborhood and used the TA app to find nearby attractions. That's the only way I knew about Ninna-Ji and I'm so glad I did! While not the top attraction in Kyoto (Golden Pavilion, Kinkaku-ji, did it for me), this is amazing and not crazy crowded. In one place you get a beautiful rock garden, gorgeous art panels, a pagoda, and other photogenic buildings. There is a train station just a short two blocks or so outside the main gate (a sight in itself to see). DO NOT MISS THIS.
