Kyoto

Kaju-ji Temple

0

This temple was built by Emperor Daigo to venerate his mother in the after-life. Another victim of Kyoto’s earthquake-prone position and the Onin Wars, by the late 17th century the temple had fallen into disrepair, until the shogunate channeled funds to restore its former glory. Today the temple is distinguished by its ancient strolling garden which remains today much as it did one thousand years ago.

Zuishin-in

0

This beautiful temple is famous for its thick canopy of plum blossom trees that explode with colour in spring. The temple houses many priceless artifacts including items belonging to famous female poet Ono Komachi. A dance is staged here annually to honour Komachi. Few tourists have even heard of Zuishin-in so it is a good place to escape the crowds.

Oishi Shrine

0

A large statue of the Samurai lord Yoshio Oishi watches over this quiet temple. The main hall stands behind a tall concrete torii and is the quintessential Japanese temple scene with cascades of cherry blossoms lining the path toward the hall. Shishi statues appear around the temple, open mouthed to ward off bad spirits and closed-mouth to keep the good luck. The annual Sakura Festival is held her in the first week of April.

  • Opening Hours: 24 hours
  • How to get there: Tozai L, Yamashina Station
