Unfortunately I stayed only one night in the temple. It was great. So quite and peaceful. The rooms are designed according traditional Japanese style. Clean and simple. AC / heating included. In the morning I attended a meditation class, which I can strictly recommend. Made...More
The Myoshinji Temple complex is an incredibly peaceful place, full of beautiful sub-temples bordering quiet lanes. Shunkoin is one of these enchanting places. I spent 3 nights there in the guesthouse, and the facility is excellent. My room looked out across temple rooftops towards the...More

Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and
impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.

Book though email, pay upon arrival. You can pay by cash or card if you'd like; although I think cash is easier on them, they do have a card reader. You will need to provide information including your flight number, passport number, time of arrival, etc. when you book with them.
My guidebook recommended emailing them, and that worked perfectly for me. You can look up their website and email address. The staff were very helpful and responded promptly.
Enjoy your stay!!
