Most of the tourists head to the nearby Yasaka Shrine. But if you head north from the shrine gate on Highashi Dori (I hope I have the street name right) there is a lovely, quiet temple. The garden is simply lovely, and you can sit...More
We walked through this temple and gardens in the pouring rain and was a beautiful experience. The gardens were so peaceful and beautiful. I would highly recommend the trip out to the Sanzen-in Temple if you have the time.
If you want to touch the heart of rural Japan, go to Ohara. You’ve got few opportunities to reach there. From Kyoto station the fastest way is to take the Karasuma subway line to the Kokusaikaikan station and then Kyoto city bus No 19 to...More
We had a spare morning before leaving Kyoto and decided to take the trip up into the hills to see this stunning garden. The trip takes about 1 hour each way and can be reached either through a single bus trip from downtown Kyoto, or...More
i went to sanzen-in because a close friend recommended it. i had not heard of it much on travel sites/blogs. it is quite a bit out of kyoto, north-east from the shijo/karasuma area...takes about an hour to get there on the kyoto bus. for people...More
This atmosphere is unbeatable. So ancient and religious. Visit this temple in the morning because it can become quite crowded (we were the first visitors - that was the ony possibilty to take our picture without other visitors).

There are taxis in the area because of tourists. It may be a case of luck as to whether there is one around when you arrive at the bus stop. It is a quiet area. I think the cabs tend to be dropping off and picking up closer to the temples in the area. We walked from the bus stop to Sanzenin-in. It was an easy, pleasant walk. When we finished at Sanzenin in we were able to get a cab, that had just dropped people off, and we used that to go to Jakkoin. That would have been a 30 minutes walk. We then walked back to the bus stop from Jakkoin. (20 min).
