Ninna-ji Temple (仁和寺) is yet another awesome World Heritage listed temple in Kyoto. The temple was founded in 888 by the reigning emperor and has many interesting features. Highlights include a five story pagoda and elegantly painted Japanese doors and walls in the head priests building.
- Ryoanji temple is only a short walk or bus away, so do both if you can.
- It’s a great cherry blossom spot.
