Default Japan Tour: Higashiyama and Kodaiji Temple


Kodaiji Temple is a dramatic temple on top of a hill in the Higashiyama area of Kyoto. It was established by Nene in 1606 in memory of Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Nene, who is enshrined at the temple, was the wife of Hideyoshi.

Kodaiji is a zen temple, and the buildings and grounds are lovely.

The main hall building on the grounds is bookended by two gorgeous gardens.

One is a rock garden that is said to symbolize a vast ocean. The other garden is an has a pond, man made hills, decorative rocks and pine and maple trees.

The entire area is classic Kyoto.

Below Kodaiji is the Path of Nene, a beautifully preserved cityscape full of shops and other temples.
