This temple is located in south of kyoto and north of nara. Joruriji is very famous for number of splendid Buddhas and Gansenji is 2km walk from Joruriji. We can enjoy walking of country path and small stone Buddhas. To visit these temples, there is few bus service only, so I recommend to use rent-a-car from Nara.

It's a nice little Buddhist temple in tranquil, peaceful settings. There's a beautiful 3-story pagoda there. The temple is not far from Joruri-ji temple so you can see them both if you're in the area. We drove there with our friends so I have no idea about the public transportation there
