Bizarre retreat

After touring temples we went to Shozan for lunch. It is like an empty Disneyland defined for weddings. The only place with people was the bowling alley.

We enjoyed an excellent yet inexpensive meal in this traditional Japanese restaurant with a fabulous view of the grounds. The fried chicken and chicken in breadcrumbs, tempura seafood are all highly recommended. Take a taxi from the Golden temple and get away from the crowds, definitely worth it. They will call a taxi to take you back.

Staying in Northern Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Northern Kyoto
Hot springs and historic temples characterize the leafy landscapes of Northern Kyoto. Acres of tranquil residential streets are interrupted by some of Kyoto's most gorgeous architectural gems, including the majestic Golden Pavilion of Kinkakuji, the serene artistry of the Ryoanji Temple rock gardens, and the bold red paint across the structures of Enryakuji Temple. Once a religious core of the city, the district now boasts some of its most remote and peaceful hot springs, as well as a few of its best family-run mom-and-pop restaurants. A blend of extremely local at its outskirts, and highly peopled at its tourist centers, Northern Kyoto nonetheless retains a halcyon air in harmony with nature.
