One of Kyoto’s most famous and most scenic temples. The temple is most famous for its veranda which sticks out over the hillside and offers expansive views of Kyoto.
It’s UNESCO World Heritage listed to boot so it can be quite crowded.
There are no nearby train stations so the temple area is best reached by bus.
