History and Traditional Culture
This vast, verdant temple located an hour north of Kyoto proper is ideal for travelers looking to wander off the beaten path. Most impressive is its moss garden dotted with charming stone statues, which is set ablaze with hues of red, orange and gold in the autumn months. Wind your way through tree-lined paths to the Ojo-Gokuraku-In Hall, and you'll be greeted by a stunning image of Amida Buddha.
