This was my first visit to Jakkoin after many return visits to my old favourite Sanzenin in Ohara.. My husband and I were both impressed by the impact Jakkoin had on us both. It is hidden away at the end of a country lane and...More

Jakkoin is a temple, which is also well known by Heike Monogatari, a famous tale. Unfortunately its main building was burned and the actual one is a reconstruction. But at the first glance, you may not notice it is new. This temple is not big,...More

It's a nice temple but doesn't have much special. The garden is nice but again not something you only have at this temple. It's a bit pricey as well ~800 per person .

The original temple was burnt down so there is nothing to see at all. Very disappointed by the visit to Ohara because there is no much to see in Sanzenin, which is supposed to be the main attraction. Travelling from Kyoto to Ohara is not...More

When in Ohara, do opt for the walk through the village! The path starts right next to the bus station restrooms, crosses the river, and continues straight ahead. You'll pass rice fields (in summer), village houses, some shops and tea houses, and some nice views...More

Jakko-in temple is west of the bus station in Ohara. There are many temples and shrines in the Kyoto area that you can enter for free that are far bigger and more interesting. Jakko-in charges 600 yen to see its tiny grounds and buildings whereas...More

This temple is about 10-15 min from the bus stop, and not gorgeous and not huge. Also not the world heritage, however, you can enjoy the quietness. Not close to Kyoto station, but this is one of the place I want to be back again....More

When you visit Ohara, do not for get to visit Jokkoin, just about 20 minutes walk from Sanzenin,or 15 minutes from bus stop,you will find something different from the temples in Kyoto!
