1-hour small yet great trip from Kyoto Station – Toji Temple
My favorite spot
My favorite spot in Kyoto is Toji Temple, a world heritage site which has history of 1,200 years!
Located within 15-minute walking distance from Kyoto station (1 Kujo-cho, Minami-ku, Kyoto City), it is easy to access. As everybody knows the famous temple, you can ask anyone for the direction on the way. If you take a taxi from the station, you can come back in an hour or so too.
They open between 8:30a.m. - 5:30p.m. (Mar 20th - Sep 19th), 8:30a.m. - 4:30p.m. (Sep 20th - Mar 19th). Admission charge is 500 yen.
One of the greatest thing is the pagoda of Toji. It is the tallest wooden tower in Japan and you can see it from Kyoto station.
