I visited this temple of the day I visited Kinkaku-ji temple. The gardens are beautiful, and were especially so since we went in full bloom cherry blossom season. Worth a stop.

If you go to Kyoto and visit Kinkakuji Temple, you need to take some time to visit this gem. This temple offers beautiful sand gardens where you can feel really quiet and feel like you are miles apart from the crowds in kinkakuji.

Very relaxing place, there is no admission fee around this place. It is a place to offer cheap tourism. (However, Ninwa Temple Black Book Office is charged.) とても落ち着く場所、この周りは拝観料はかかりません。安価な観光を提供する場所です。(ただし、二和寺 黒書院は、有料です)
