Default Japan Tour: Kodaiji Temple Higashiyama Kyoto

?????

Kodaiji Temple, in eastern Kyoto, sits atop a bluff above the Path of Nene in one of the most beautiful areas of the city.

Walking from Maruyama Park and Yasaka Shrine, there is a slope that heads towards Kodaiji Temple on the left and Entokuin Temple on the right.

Kodaiji was built in 1605 at the behest of Nene, for whom the street was named. She was the favored wife of Toyotomi Hideyoshi.

Down the block from the entrance to Kodaiji, on Nene no Michi is the perfect Ishibei Koji alley.

For those who continue south on Nene no Michi, you will arrive at Ninenzaka and Sannenzaka - well-preserved sloped streets that have gorgeous shops filled with Japanese goods - and finally arrive at Kiyomizu Temple.

Kodaiji Access

From Gion, it is a 10-15 minute walk to Kodaiji Temple.
