Fushimi Inari Taisha
4.6/5
1,774 Reviews
Temple
Fushimi Inari Taisha is one of the oldest shrines in Kyoto. People come to worship Inari Okami, the god harvest and commercial success. The Torii leading to the main shrine is a famous landscape of this shrine. This long and endless pathway is arranged from the foot of the mountain to the top of the mountain. It is one of the representative landscapes of Kyoto and has appeared in the movie “Memoirs of a Geisha”. Because the fox is regarded as the messenger of the Inari Okami, the fox-faced shaped emas are a major feature here.
Byodo-in
4.6/5
218 Reviews
UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site    
Byodo-in is a temple garden built in the chisen kaiyuushiki style during the Heiain period of Japanese history. It was listed as a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1994. In front of the Byodo-in is the Uji River, and a little further back is Mount Asahi (Asahiyama). Byodo-in was once a pleasure villa for many past emperors. When the temple was first built, there were many more buildings, but most of them burned down during a civil war. Now there are just the Phoenix Hall, Guanyin Hall and Bell Tower. Among them, the most famous is the Phoenix Hall.

Temple
Kinkaku-ji is an ancient Japanese temple in Kyoto. Completed in 1397, it originally served as the villa of shogun Ashikaga Yoshimitsu, but was later transformed into a Zen Buddhist temple. Originally named Rokuon-ji (literally "Deer Garden Temple"), it is also known as the Temple of the Golden Pavilion owing to the gold foil that the outside of the building is wrapped in. In addition to being a famous tourist attraction, Kinkaku-ji has also been designated as a National Treasure by the Japanese government and is a symbol of Kyoto.
