entry fee is 400 Yen (hojo and garden are extra, also 400). We were in Kyoto the 2nd time and haven't seen this temple the first time. What a loss. The stone garden is very beautiful and we liked it better than Ryoanji. To us,...More

Loved it. The highlight for me was the stone garden. It was beautiful and peaceful. The moss gardens were great as well. Tofuku-ji Temple is quite a large area with beautiful architecture and a forested area as well. I was surprised by just how big...More

Get the JR (not bus) as it is easy to find from station and you otherwise have to find a way to cross railway line. Worth seeing as it's near to the red shrine (Fushimi-invariably?) but disappointing by comparison. It shuts early. Allow several hours...More

We visited this temple after Fushimi Shrine because it is a short distance Walk. The place is big, but you need to pay separately if you want to see the garden or the bridge. We were surprised to find out the garden is very small....More

Just beautiful. I was lost in the temple for 3 hours then realised I still had so much more to see in that area.

Tofuku-ji is not to be missed! While it is not as famous as the Fushimi-Inari shire one rail stop away, it is a treasure. Expansive, elaborate gardens span the complex, and visitors will not be disappointed. I highly recommend spending the extra money to buy...More

Close to both the local and the Shin-Kansen railroad tracks this is a very wonderful place to visit. Our 2nd time there and even on a steamy hot day it makes you smile. The huge wooden temples, the pond with lotus flowers and the stone...More

This was one of my last stops and it was a pretty garden. I had seen a lot of different temples at this point so I skipped the building tours but you could kind of see inside and it looked like a lot of the...More

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

There are many flights of steps to get to the temple. Some of the pavement are laid with gravels. Suggest you carry your baby in a sling.
