Yet another beautiful place in Kyoto. Do make your reservation before coming here. I was lucky that I got in without reservation.

It was too full of people, and the famous table that reflects the garden was extremely disappointing! Wouldn't recommend anyone to go, there are so many other nicer temples around Kyoto, and for way less price as well!

The most important thing to do here as a tourist seems to be taking one scene only. If the queue is very long and the red leaves are not in good condition, you should consider to save your time and visit other places. The entrance fee is 2000 yen, which is very high.

It's a very beautiful temple. It's worth the time on lining up and waiting outside.
