  • Jojakkoji Temple was located after the bamboo trail. Entrance fee was required but there were full fall colors within the temple garden on the slope during autumn period. Nice to have a view there.....  more »
  • A wonderful temple at the non-touristy side of Arashiyama. It boosts an amazing view during autumn like no other. Not the biggest of temple and it very much goes up the hill. It is layers and layers....  more »

  • Beautiful temple. Especially during fall/autumn. A perfect place to snap a photo. Also its near the arashiyama bamboo forest. My top list of the most beautiful temple when i was in kyoto. Hope the gov or people there can preserve and look after the places for many generation to come.
  • No word to describe. Too beautiful. With only 500Yen you can enjoy the amazing view. Just 10 min from the tourist place bamboo path.
