Kajuji (not Kanshuji) is located in Yamashina, suburb of Kyoto, and it is easily reached by subway (station: Ono). Although it is not far from the center of Kyoto, there is few tourists in this temple. So, if you like a quite place, I am sure that you love it. The pond with lotus is really beautiful. The best season... More

We went to Kajyu-ji(or Kansyu-ji) on a cloudy day. From Kyoto City Hall, we reached there after 20 minutes ride of subway Tozai-Line and 5 minutes walk from Ono subway station.

I went to kanshu-ji at 1st week in April. Most near station is "Ono 小野おの" (subway tohzai line/地下鉄 東西線). It was most beautiful Cherry blossom season,Temple has a big Japanese garden and a pond and many Cherry trees!! Here is not so famous and little bit far from central Kyoto, Where is quite and beautiful.

Again, found this by coincidence. Take higashino station and still 3 km far again. After finish explore mountain kiyomizu. My 2 day pass cannot accepted by this bus.. guarantee u gonna love it. Cant tell the no of bus because of kanji. So you better equip yourself with map technology.

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
