The landscaping of these gardens is truly remarkable. If you come to see the bamboo forest you simply have to come to these gardens because they run along side them. It really is a must of you come to Tokyo but do yourself a favour and get here early. There is a small change to see the garden and addition to walk through the temples. Can recumbent both. Make time to sit and just take in the view of the stunning ponds, pools and bubbling brooks.

Place is very beautiful and tranquil. Breathtaking view at the pond area. Take some time to soak in the scenery and don't forget to take pictures!

Tenryuji, is not as crowded and busy as other major temples in Kyoto.

There is a pond with scenic mountain view, where visitors can sit on the benches in front of the temple to enjoy.

There are also trails along the hills where you can get good view of the temple.

A nice stop by temple while you are in Arashiyama.

I think one should visit Tenryuji temple when in Arashiyama. The temple itself has a large beautiful landscape garden, which is very nice to admire. One can also access the Bamboo Forest through this temple.

Everywhere I went I felt I was on the film set of Memoirs of a Geisha. It was so beautiful, the gardens were just perfect. The walk around the temple just takes you back in time. I can only imagine how beautiful it must be during the cherry blossom season.?
