Went here and walked around grounds for 1 hour with the family. Was a wonderful trip and highly recommend it. Its a bit off center and mainly Japanese here visiting rather than many foreigners

Visited this place in the morning before the crowd flocked in. Loved the garden and the little statues at this temple. Worth a visit when in Kyoto.

It is cherry blossom season which makes the grounds of this temple both incredibly beautiful - and also a little crowded. Despite the busyness the Sanzen-in Temple was well worth the visit as it offers beautiful gardens filled with spring colour and textures and a number statues and shrines. I really enjoyed my morning strolling through these gardens - I also enjoyed the other temple located up the hill.

Senzen-in = Autumn leaves. i visited this place wanted to take pictures with beautiful and famous place. Koyo seems was not a golden age, but the cool breeze is pleasant, I enjoyed also appreciation of autumn leaves. Among them, the lad Jizo is especially famous as. Like moss in the garden mossy has been healed in cheerful Jizo that looks like a cushion. Transportation is a bus or car, public transportation is I think that recommendation. The road is followed by a narrow mountain road, also, because the whole city of Kyoto is very busy, it seems harsh when you go in a private car. Meal processing to the approach from the train station to Sanzenin, because the souvenir shop-lined, never trouble, such as the toilet. Even in your family, even one person, I think I enjoyed the location. However, the approach is very narrow and the car can not back and forth level. Since become addicted to comes to the way in taking care must be taken.
