This small and quiet temple has sensationally hit the internet with its super photogenic “heart-shaped window” called “inome window” at their guest hall. Inome (heart shape) is a traditional Japanese pattern with over 1400 years history and used for several historical buildings in the country. Inome pattern is believed to avoid disaster and bring happiness. You can see their beautiful Japanese garden through the window and the various scenery on each season can be enjoyed.

Option 02: Byodoin

Byodoin Historical Kyoto Private Package Tour

Byodoin Temple is a striking example of Buddhist Pure Land (Jodo) architecture. Together with its garden, the temple represents the Pure Land Paradise and was influential on later temple construction. Byodoin was initially built in 998 as a countryside retreat villa for the powerful politician Fujiwara no Michinaga, not as a temple.

Adults: JPY600 per person (additional 300 yen for a tour of the Phoenix Hall)

 

Option 03: Sanjusangendo

Sanjusangendo Historical Kyoto Private Package Tour

Adults: JPY600 per person

 

Option 04: Fushimi Castle

Fushimi Castle Historical Kyoto Private Package Tour

Fushimi Castle, in the south east of Kyoto city, was originally built for Toyotomi Hideyoshi between 1592-1594 and it was here the great warlord passed away in 1598. Fushimi Castle, which is also known as Momoyama Castle or Fushimi-Momoyama Castle, has had a chequered history. The castle was built as a fortified palace and a retirement home for Toyotomi and its main purpose is not purely defensive.

 

Option 05: Fushimi Inari

Fushimi Inari Historical Kyoto Private Package Tour

Fushimi Inari Shrine is an important Shinto shrine in southern Kyoto. It is famous for its thousands of vermilion torii gates, which straddle a network of trails behind its main buildings. The trails lead into the wooded forest of the sacred Mount Inari, which stands at 233 meters and belongs to the shrine grounds.

 

 

Option 06: Ginkakuji

Ginkakuji Historical Kyoto Private Package Tour

Ginkakuji (Silver Pavilion) is a Zen temple along Kyoto’s eastern mountains (Higashiyama). In 1482, shogun Ashikaga Yoshimasa built his retirement villa on the grounds of today’s temple, modeling it after Kinkakuji (Golden Pavilion), his grandfather’s retirement villa at the base of Kyoto’s northern mountains (Kitayama). The villa was converted into a Zen temple after Yoshimasa’s death in 1490.

Entrance fee (separate from tour price, to be purchased on the spot)
Adults: JPY500 per person

 

Option 07: Kinkakuji

Kinkakuji Historical Kyoto Private Package Tour

Kinkakuji (Golden Pavilion) is a Zen temple in northern Kyoto whose top two floors are completely covered in gold leaf. Formally known as Rokuonji, the temple was the retirement villa of the shogun Ashikaga Yoshimitsu, and according to his will it became a Zen temple of the Rinzai sect after his death in 1408. Kinkakuji was the inspiration for the similarly named Ginkakuji (Silver Pavilion), built by Yoshimitsu’s grandson, Ashikaga Yoshimasa, on the other side of the city a few decades later.
