Hosen-in Temple

Temple
A Buddhist temple located in Oharashorinin-cho, Sakyo Ward, Kyoto City. One of the three Tendai Monzeki temples, it stands on the road approaching the Sanzen-in Temple. The temple’s beautiful “framed garden” is powerful and lush, with a 300 year old sal tree and a 700 year old Japanese white pine which has been designated a Natural Monument by the city of Kyoto. Visitors can pass through a tatami room with a view of the white pine and exchange a ticket provided at the grounds entrance to receive a cup of matcha green tea and an original temple confection.

    This little gem is next to Sanzen-in temple, so if you’re in the area, don’t miss it. The most beautiful garden I’ve ever seen. The pictures just don’t do the justice!!!
  • ANOTHER GREAT TEMPLE IN OHARA

    This temple is just an addition to other sites and a quaint shopping area after a twenty minute walk from the bus stop in Ohara, a northern area of Kyoto out in the country.
