Kyoto, the cultural capital, has always resisted modern looking architecture, and the Kyoto Tower had its share of resistance, but was finally completed and opened to general public in 1964. Designed to look like a Japanese candle, Kyoto Tower is an observation tower which is just opposite of JR Kyoto Station. Do not miss an aerial view of Kyoto, well equipped with binoculars which can give you a wonderful view of this city so rich in culture.

Nishi Hongan-ji

Nishi Hongan-ji

Nishi Hongan-ji is a large Buddhist temple located west of Kyoto Station. Together with Higashi Hongan-ji, Nishi Hongan-ji is one of the two Shin Buddhism temple complexes in Kyoto. It is also currently serving as the head temple of the sect. Built in 1591, the building is a great example of Momoyama period architecture. Nishi Hongan-ji is also one of the 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kyoto. Within the temple grounds, several structures have been designated as National Treasures or Important Cultural Assets. This includes a Noh stage, Drum Tower, Goeido Hall and more. Most structures within Nishi Hongwan-ji are adorned with gold trimmings and elaborate architecture. Nishi Hongwan-ji is also regarded as part of the Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto. Being a mere 10-minute walk from Kyoto station, its central location makes Nishi Hongwan-ji one of the most accessible UNESCO Heritage Spots in Kyoto. Originally, the temple was located at the site of Shinran’s (founder of Shin-Buddhism) burial at Otani Mausoleum. The huge complex is also filled with greenery, with a 400-year old Gingko tree right outside the Goeido Hall. If you’re lucky enough to visit Nishi Hongwan-ji during autumn, you can view this Natural Monument in its full golden glory. Other highlights include the Karamon gate, Goeido and Amidado.
