If you liked the golden kinkakuji, you will also like this temple. "Gin" means silver in Japanese, but this temple is more wooden than it is silver. Some enjoy the more natural look of this temple compared to others, and the garden is also beautiful!
Located in Northern Kyoto, to check out this area is a must. Although the shrine itself is beautiful, many people go to enjoy the beautiful forest of Kyoto. The most amazing part of this area is the restauraunts on the river. That`s right! ON the river. Called "kawadoko", you can enjoy a delicious meal while relaxing on the river. Google it!
Not a major location in Kyoto, but we highly recommend checking this place out. Nanzen-ji itself is beautiful, but what is more interesting is the waterway. It was built to carry water from Biwa Lake to Kyoto.
Experience Japan the way the locals do. Check out this famous street market where you can buy many kinds of delicious Japanese food. Take a leap of faith and try eating something you`ve never eaten before, it may surprise you.
If you don`t want to waste time and you want to explore the city as soon as you get there, or if you have a lot of items to carry, why not use Kyoto`s hands free travel service. Check out their official website on the official Kyoto City Travel Guide.
