There is both an unpaid and paid section of the temple, so make sure to check the maps to see if the parts you want to visit require a ticket or not!

Nanzen-ji was once a set location for the film Lost In Translation. On her short trip to Kyoto from Tokyo, the lonely character Charlotte, played by Scarlett Johansson, visits this temple as well as Heian Jingu Shrine.
