To be honest, I didn't really know about my city untill I began to work here. I'm still learning Kyoto though.
On my day off recently, I went to Sanzenin in Ohara which is very famous temple and also one of the places I've never visited.
Ohara is a little far away from center city. It takes 45 min. by bus. When I got there, I was impressed by full of nature. It was so relaxhing!
Sanzenin is 10 min. away from the bus stop.
Entrance fee is JPY700. This is a little expensive but you will forget it once entering the temple.
A poet called Sanzenin "A jewel box of East". A jewel box indicates its garden. It changes face in each season, Spring with cherry blossoms, summer with green, Autumn with red maples and winter with snow...
