Visit Saihoji Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage site of Zen and peace. At the eighth-century temple complex, which is covered in over 120 species of moss, you'll find a central pond, which takes the shape of the Chinese character for heart. Find three tea houses tucked away in the garden, then head to the eastern side of the complex to find the temple hall and a three-story pagoda. Saihoji Temple is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Kyoto Edition.
Saihoji Temple Reviews
Même si obtenir la réservation est un peu compliqué, la visite vaut vraiment la peine. Le jardin est absolument magnifique. more »Even if getting the reservation is a bit complicated, the visit is definitely worth it. The garden is absolutely beautiful.
京都は素敵な場所ですが、正直観光客が多すぎて風情なくげんなりします。しかしこちらは人数制限があり本来の静かさを感じる事ができます。二ヶ月前から予約しないと行けないし、今時ハガキで応募ですが、ネットと違い本気の人しか出さないので良いと思います。入館料も3000円しましたが、これも本気でみたい人しか来ないのでいいと思います。 more »Kyoto is a wonderful place, but honestly there are too many tourists to enjoy it. However, there is a limit on the number of people here, and you can feel the original quietness. I can not go unless I make a reservation from two months ago, but I apply by postcard at this time, I think that it is good because only serious people come out unlike the net. The admission fee was 3000 yen, but I think that it is good because only the person who wants to really want to come this.
