The temple located in Arashiyama is small but beautiful inside and we have a quiet enjoyment there by paying the entrance fee of Yen500 per person. The landscaped grounds inside are well maintained. Worth to come during sakura period.

Quiet and peaceful, worth the entrance fee. The walk from small temple to small temple was extremely relaxing and interesting. Recommend this temple.

Jojakko-ji Temple is a quaint temple on the main Arashiyama tourist route that offers a chance to escape the crowds that swarms the area. A good little enclave to explore before heading to the forest.

We took the Randen Keifuku Dentetsu-Arashiyama Line tram from Shijo-Omiya station. This is definitely a must visit temple with its serene and 'close to nature' feel. The steep steps to the temple is one of the main attractions, though it may be a struggle for...More

깊어져만 가는 가을 그대 고민하지말고, 지금 떠나라. 붉게 물든 교토의 가을이 당신을 기다린다. 深まるばかり行く秋 君悩まないで、今出発せよ。 赤く染まった京都の秋があなたを待っている。 A deepening fall Don't worry about yourself, just leave now. The autumn of Kyoto, which is stained with red color, awaits you.

Jojakko-ji temple is a short walk from the Arashiyama bamboo grove. It is better to club the visit to this place with your walk through the bamboo grove. This place is beautiful with moss-covered lands and well-maintained gardens. Please note - there are steep steps...More

If you think after Tokyo you have seen too many temples to bother with this one you're wrong. It has a dozen featured buildings, beautiful moss gardens, ancient bells and a truly contemplative atmosphere. There is also the brilliant lookout over the mountains, gardens and...More

We started off on the bamboo pathway in Arashiyama and were very underwhelmed. It is overcrowded and just not that special. Wee made our way north and the crowds thinned, and then we followed a few people to Jo-Jakkoji, and were so glad that we...More
