Unless one has a craving for knowledge about Japanese religious culture, the high price of admission to part of the Toji Temple complex is not worth it. The full complex would cost 1000 yen. The pagoda is certainly a sight, but it can be seen...More

The entry for the temple starts at 6.30 pm for the night lights. Queue was quite long but orderly. The park of the temple is a sight to behold with the night lights. Get ready your DSLR cameras or a smart phone with pro mode...More

This temple is near the main railway station and is about a 15 minute walk. It is charming and easily seen from the street. A nice place.

I want to start off by saying that there is a difference between Toji-in Temple (this one) and Toji Temple (near Kyoto Station). Toji Temple has the tall pagoda and the flea market, this one is very small with a beautiful garden. Great place to...More

Toji-in Temple is maybe not as famous as Kinkakuji or Kiyomizudera. But in my opinion it is even more charming. As I visited in the morning, there are few tourists and I enjoyed the serenity of garden in a fresh air.

The immaculate gardens of Tojo in reveal the great skill and experience of Japanese Gardeners that lift gardening to an art form. You easily spend 3 hours contemplating the pond, bridges and planting, wandering along the path and up the steps to the two tea...More

majestic Golden Pavilion of Kinkakuji, the serene
artistry of the Ryoanji Temple rock gardens, and the
bold red paint across the structures of Enryakuji
