Beautiful Japanese rocky yard, nice Japanese garden and pond and temples. Easy to go first here and then walk to the Golden Pavilion.

I love this place. It has a beautiful garden and the staff are friendly (not always the case in temples or Kyoto). They even make a point of saying that photos are ok. I've been a few times and each time the staff have been wonderful.

Catch the 59 bus and do the Ninna-ji, Rohana-ji and Golden Pavilion together. The busses come every 10 minutes and follow the route of the temples perfectly. You can buy a bus card for a few hundred Yen and hop on and off all day. You can also use Suica cards. The bus even has English announcements telling you when to get off for the Temples. The temples can be busy, it's very hot in summer but it so worth it. There is a fantastic little cafe doing ice cream at the last Temple, Ninnaji or maybe it just seemed so because it was so hot and we really needed the aircon and ice cream.
