It was lovely.. enjoyed walking through all the deer to get to the great buddha hall and gardens.. nice complex, cute deer , nice shopping and great sights, what more could you want.
This giant Buddha is Japan's largest and is really a sight to see! Make sure to see the Buddha from all angles, especially the side view as you can really appreciate the massive size by getting a little closer to it.

Shosha are still very worth the visit for the experience, the history, art, and culture lessons, for the fantastic view of Himeji, for the most delicious vegetarian noodles I’ve tasted, and the list goes on.

A hall of a thousand bigger than life statues a definite site to see, amazingly preserved and intricately beautiful statues.

Hasedera Temple Sakurai

But, as the video's title says, visiting Hasedera in any season, it can offer you tranquility and awesome views of covered walkways, buildings, and Buddha besides flowers and Nature.

#1 of 8 Sights & Landmarks in Nisikyo
Our group of 35 followed a guide on a circuit along paths and a stone-paved walk that brought us to various elevations for different views of the scenery, made even prettier by trees with leaves of red and gold.
The gardens are absolutely amazing...AMAZING.......spectacular..and so very soothing to the Spirit of the frenzied tourist whose plate overflows with must-see sights.

It is an incredible garden (actually three very different gardens linked by paths) with wonderful views out over the countryside and back down to Kyoto.
The icing on the cake was the breathtaking view of the mountains and the surrounding landscape.
#9 of 973 Sights & Landmarks in Kyoto
I discovered Otagi while researching sites for a private tour of Kyoto and saw pictures of the charming stone statues, each face being unique, some happy, some sad, others contemplative.
It is far from all the hustles of the other tourist sights in Arashiyama however you can visit Adashino Nenbutsuji and Saga Toriimoto Preserved Street during your visit.

Nice temple and beautiful to view, it is located in a little 'park' with other smaller temples and trees which makes it a very nice and peaceful walk through the park to the temple.

I can highly recommend visiting here for an unique peaceful open-air sunset; you can go to the highest view-point (Sky Tree) but there will be crowds and queues.
Like every tourist landmarks, there is a photo booth to capture the moment if the battery of your camera failed, like ours Must go if you are in town, Just awesome!
