Kansai East last Part; Walking inside Kodai-Ji

4 Days Revisiting Japan in Winter with my Mother
February 10 to February 14, 2015


How to go to Kodai-Ji;
More than a kilometer walk from Guion-Shijo train station (covered by Kansai Thru Pass). Entrance fee of 600JPY. Photography and video taking is permitted, tripod not allowed.

Kodai-Ji Temple, formally known as Kodaijusho-zenji Temple, is located in the Higashima mountains of Eastern Kyoto just south of Yasaka Shrine. It was established in 1605 by the noblewoman Kita-no-Mandokoro in memoryof her late husband, Toyotomi Hideyoshi.This temple was ravaged by series of fires after 1789, and all that survive of its original buildings are the Otama-ya, Kaisan-do, etc. Fortunately, these remain in an excellent state of preservation, and have all been designated "Important Cultural Properties" by the Japanese Government.
