Default Japan Tour: Ninnaji Temple Kyoto

?????

In front of the large and impressive gate of Ninnaji Temple are two Nio-san demons.

They are large wooden guardian statues on both the right and left of the temple entrance.

Their "job" is to protect the temple from evil.

Ninnaji is a temple in western Kyoto with expansive grounds that was founded in the 9th century.

Prior to that, the grounds and its buildings served as a summer retreat for the emperor and his large entourage.

Information

Two-minute walk from Omuro Station on the Kitano line of the Keifuku Railway.

Buses #10, #26, and #59 all stop at Ninnaji-mae.

33 Ouchi Omuro
Ukyo-ku
Kyoto
075-461-1155

There is a 400 yen entrance fee to the sub-temple on your left as you enter. The rest of the complex is free.
