The place is so amazing. It was one of my favorite spot in Kyoto next to Kyomizudera Temple. Best to visit during autumn where foliage is evident and winter where the snow has encapped temple like cotton. If you have extra time, check out and experience tea ceremony inside the area.

Crowded, but it was expected. The view was nice and calming.

nice place to take photo btw they are selling very pretty omamori with reasonable price.
