O-hara is a very quiet area among montains and patches of field. Walking along a small path in the field, you can get to Jakko-in, a nunnery with historical tragedy. Sanzen-in and some other temples are located in the other side of the field, just along the foot of a mountain.

Sanzen-in Temple, founded in the late 8th century, is among the oldest belonging to the Tendai sect of Buddhism. Located in the town of Ohara, an hour north of central Kyoto, the temple is surrounded by natural beauty and offers a relaxing stroll through a variety of seasonal flowers. The traditional gardens with vermilion gates and green moss are the must-see. You will be enchanted with 3,000 hydrangeas sprawling over the forest.

For two weeks around May, the town of Ohara hosts the Oharame Festival, in which local women walk around the neighborhood in a procession dressed in traditional farming costume. You can rent this costume free and participate in the festival. Another attraction is Otonashi-no-taki ('soundless waterfall), which flows calmly in the mountain behind the temple.
