Temple near Kyoto; famous statue of seated Buudha by 11th-century sculptor, Jocho.
Phoenix Hall internal worship (50 people capacity: 300 yen in price) Then the white rhinoceros at the Amida Nyorai's forehead (Byakugou= light of the statue of Buddha) is black in the goddess, the light shines per step as you step out of the temple It was. It is mysterious.
In the museum "Byodoin Museum Hoshokan" you can see Unchu Kuyo Bosatsu Statues nearby, or you can see images reproducing the decoration of The Phoenix Hall, and decorations before restoration are on display. You can know the heart of the founder who drew hope in the afterlife 1000 years ago.できればまたゆっくり、そして表門の門前町などゆっくり眺めたいなと思いました。

Located in the suburb of Kyotanabe, away from touristed hot spots, this temple is a hidden gem. It's absolutely beautiful during the autumn season with red leaves surrounding the vista. It's beautiful and peaceful. You can enjoy a quiet tea ceremony here at its tea hall.

This shrine is one of many located throughout Japan that was built to honor Inari, the Shinto god of rice.
Too often the big name sites like this end up being destroyed by the commercialisation that unfortunately seems all too inevitable, however this has survived. While there are plenty of people trying to sell you things, they are largely confined to the same areas and there are plenty of spaces that are still serene (well as serene as somewhere can be with millions of people coming through each year). Either way its definitely worth a visit.

Everything in here is very interesting and some of it is very beautiful. It contains items that were in the main temple: buddhas, bells, sutra and decoration. There isn't that much in the way of English descriptions and no photos are allowed, but it was a great place to visit nonetheless.

Not far from Kyoto, nevertheless there is a temple of which atomosphere is quite different: quiet, restful and unusual. The temple is Obakusan Manpukuji in Uji, near stations Obaku of a JR-line and a Keihan-line. The temple is the main temple of Obaku-shu, one of the three zen branches, founded in 17 century by an invited chinese monk Ingen Ryuki. The temple is a copy of chinese temple of the Ming period. Different buildings and their inscriptions (writings) bring you in an ancient chinese temple and you may feel exotic atomosphere.
I have visited here twice and twice for practicising zazen of the introductory course. It needs a reservation. It was done in the Hohdoh and lasted about one hour with two sessions of 15 minutes, an explanation of techniques and hohwa (on the Buddhist philosophy).
After zazen, I have lunched at the restaurant of the temple where one can enjoy the Futcha cooking, dishes of chinese zen temple, similar to the shozin cooking. I appreciated its taste. I found that doing zazen and having a lunch here were highly compatible.

This bridge is nothing more than the longest wooden bridge in Japan. The bridge slads can be floated if the river is flooded. Quite a few movies have been shot here because of traditional Japanese coutry side scenery (surprisingly you can take a photo without any modane buildings here!) The bridge is totally away from the main stream of Kyoto sightseeing but it is great to see the real Japan. But all about this is a wooden bridge sometimes loose the slads, it is great place if you want to see untouched Japan not far away from Kyoto.
