Kyoto was the ancient capital of Japan from 794 over one thousand years.
I would like to introduce you Kinkakuji Temple, Ryoanji Temple, Ninnaji Temple, Koryuji Temple and Uzumasa movie village.
Kinkakuji Temple is more familiar to foreign tourists as "The Temple of the Golden Pavillion". It was built during the 14th century on the grounds of a mountain villa belonging to Shogun Ashikaga Yoshimitsu. Golden Pavilion can be seen both in its natural form and as an upside-down image on the pond.
Ryoan-ji Temple is best known for its exquisite dry landscape garden, which consists of 15 rocks of various sizes placed harmoniously on a carefully-raked bed of white gravel. What is unique about this masterpiece of Japanese culture based on Zen Buddhism is that one of the 15 rocks is designed to be invisible when viewed from any angle in front of the garden.
Pass under the Niomon-gate of Ninnaji Temple, and the approach leading to the Chuomon-gate is so broad that it seems more like an open plaza than approach. The feeling of openness is one of the signature features of Ninnaji. On the left of the ground is Omuro cherry tree, known for its late-blooming cherry blossoms. To the right side stands the 36 meter-tall five-storied pagoda.
From Ninnanji Temple to Koryuji Temple we take street cars on Keifuku Arashiyama line, constructed in 1910.
Koryuji Temple is the oldest temple in Kyoto constructed in 603. The buddha statues on display In the Reihoden hall demonstrate the long history of Koryuji as kyoto's oldest temple. One of thae statues is the Maitreya Bodhisattva (miroku bosatsu ) known for "Hokei no Miroku." The other Buddha statue is Japan's first national treasure, "Hokan no Miroku."
If you have children, you can enjoy Ninja show, street performance, character show and the like at Uzumasa movie village.
Please visit "Must-see Temples Gardens" of Kyoto.
