ここはリードをして他の参拝者の迷惑にならなければペット同伴OKです。 春は枝垂れ桜、初夏の紫陽花、秋の紅葉はとても美しいお寺です。京都から南西に位置する長岡京市の山間にあるため、観光客も少なく、のんびり散策したい方にはオススメです! ただ山間のお寺のため傾斜のきつい坂道が多いため、車椅子や杖歩行の方は介助者が必要です。 This temple accept the people with dogs. You can see the beautiful view of temple with Sakura in spring. And you also can see hydrangea and maple leafs in each season. It's located in Nagaoka-Kyo City not Kyoto-City so it's not crowded...More
