This place was really quiet compared to just about every other temple in Kyoto, so that was a definite plus. I though the grounds were lovely. I was there before the sakura had arrived and some of the buildings (inc the Kannon-do) were under renovation,...More

Definitely worth a visit. Only 500 yen and and only 800 if you want to visit the museum. You can easily spend a couple of hours here.

The cherry Blossom in April was spectacular and the gardens are a very good place to see it at its best. One has to purchase a ticket to access the gardens but it was definitely worth seeing

I just wonder to see the beauty of cherry blossoms at Ninna-Ji temple. Very nice place to enjoy cherry blossoms in the month of April. Convenient place to go by bus. Just remember that you have to buy a ticket to enter into the garden.

I was really impressed. The palace was lovely and it had some really nice Japanese gardens. it is surprisingly big inside, and there is quite a bit of information to read along the way. In the other grounds there is an impressive 5 storey pagoda.

This for me is actually one of the hidden gems of Kyoto, it doesn't tend to appear at the top of most peoples itinerates, and most people probably haven't even heard of it! But this temple, about a 20minute walk from Kinkaku-ji, has everything you...More
