Beautiful temple off the beaten track. Much less people than the other temples. Takes a train ride + 30-min bus ride but it’s totally worth the trip. If you are taking the bus, take note that the last bus back to train station is around...More

ここはリードをして他の参拝者の迷惑にならなければペット同伴OKです。 春は枝垂れ桜、初夏の紫陽花、秋の紅葉はとても美しいお寺です。京都から南西に位置する長岡京市の山間にあるため、観光客も少なく、のんびり散策したい方にはオススメです! ただ山間のお寺のため傾斜のきつい坂道が多いため、車椅子や杖歩行の方は介助者が必要です。 This temple accept the people with dogs. You can see the beautiful view of temple with Sakura in spring. And you also can see hydrangea and maple leafs in each season. It's located in Nagaoka-Kyo City not Kyoto-City so it's not crowded...More

In our opinion, we think the area around Yoshiminedera Temple is the best half day we had spent in Kyoto, after visiting all the other popular sights. We love this place simply because it isn't crowded with huge groups of tourists and we can take...More

Yoshimine dera is a large temple complex on the west side of Kyoto, away from the tourist crowds at the city centre and Arashiyama area. Another reviewer on TripAdvisor has detailed transportation to the temple complex, and it would make a nice half-day trip traveling...More
