This temple in the northern mountains of Kyoto has what is claimed Japan's first manga, a hand-painted caricature depicting birds and animals in a scroll. The temple is reached by a sloping approach lined with soaring trees. This area is a wonderful retreat in summer and offers a great view of autumn colors. There are many hiking trails to explore.

Small temple famous for the first manga displayed in Japan! The brochure will explain everything but unfortunately it is in Japanese. I guess the story would be interesting but I can't understand anything but look at the pictures.

There is a tea room for guests to experience tea but the price is 600 yen per person (temple entrance ticket is 800 yen). I really enjoy the way leads to the temple, very peaceful and quiet!

The oldest temple in Takao. Some of the surrounding area were damaged in typhoon season years ago. There are already some renovations carrying out this autumn. The remaining area still looks beautiful.

Large grounds which are mostly cut off at present. The manga scroll is interesting to see but quite pricy for 800 yen

The bell had a beautiful tone and walk across the river was stunning.
