Very beautiful. The pagoda on the site is just magnificent.
Like all the temples worth will looking at. Hours can be lost here. So if you have others to see keep an eye on the time.

Beautiful temple grounds with many areas to explore. The temple is really nice to walk around and has one of the best gardens and pond areas in all of Kyoto. This is not as famous of a temple as other Kyoto temples so there are less crowds and tourists. The rock garden is the nicest in the city of Kyoto. Highly recommend a visit!

Dress comfortable as walking is necessary to see everything on offer. I visited the temple as part of half day tour. Always great with English speaking tour guide and local knowledge/history chats.

We combined this visit with a first stop at Kinkaju-ji "Golden Pavillion" and second at Ryoan-ji Temple. One of the few opportunities in Kyoto to see 3 world heritage sites in the same 1/2 day visit. It is an ideal place to visit in the rain because all the buildings are interconnected by covered walkways.The guardian figure at the gate very stirring and the 5 story pagoda from the 1630's quite amazing. Taken together all three locations highly recommended. This is the Least visited of the 3.
