    Users Assigned: Shimizu77  
    This vast complex of 22 sub-temples and affiliated monasteries (down from about 60 during the Edo period) was built, burned down, and rebuilt between the 14th and 17th centuries.

    It is richly endowed with artistic treasures and some of Japan's most superb Zen gardens, reflecting its history as a renowned center of calligraphy, gardening, tea ceremony, and other relined arts.

    Four of Daitokuji's Zen sub-temples in particular offer superb gardens, teahouses, and artifacts.

    Daisen-in, the "Zen Temple without Equal," contains splendid painted fusuma (sliding panels) and wall paintings. Zuiho-in is a monastery whose curious gardens combine Zen Buddhist and Christian symbolism, together with both an attractive rock garden and an unusually geometric tea garden.

    Ryugen-in has five distinct rock gardens, one of which is apparently the smallest in Japan.

      • Kinkaku-ji
        This is the famous "Temple of the Golden Pavilion" of Japan.

        The original pavilion of the late fourteenth century, completely covered with a gold leaf, was typical of the rampant lavishness of the Muromachi period, indulged in by Shogun Yoshimitsu Ashikaga, who built it for his retirement at the old and mature age of 38 years!

        It was burned by a young fanatical monk in 1950, rebuilt in 1955 as an exact copy of the original structure and was reconstructed in 1987 with a new gold foil coating.

        Most of its buildings are closed to the public., But you pass by an attractive house with a tea ceremony and a thatched roof, and then you can follow some winding the stone steps to the exit.

      • Jukoin
        Here in the Juko-In monastery is where Sen no Rikyu, the founder of the tea ceremony and its most celebrated master, is buried.

        His death in 1591 by seppuku (the ritual disemboweling more crudely known to Westerners as harakiri) was in fact commanded by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, his former friend and patron.

        Rikyu apparently incurred the warlord's wrath by placing a statue of himself in the large main gate, under which Hideyoshi would have had to pass—an intolerable affront to a famously proud warrior.

      • Ryōan-ji
        Ryoanji is certainly the best known of all Zen Buddhist temples.

        Its famous rock garden has sparked more debates - both admirers and critics - than the fragments of gravel in its rectangular length of 30 m by 10 m (98 ft. By 32 ft).

        There are no tires or bushes. Only 15 bare rocks adorned with ancient moss, forming clusters in the middle of white gravel which is perfectly raked.

        Although generally attributed to the great master Soami, no one knows for sure who created it, or why.

        The mystery surrounding its origins does nothing to undermine the power of its simplicity.

        Interpretation that confuses, personifies the essence of the essentially anti-intellectual precepts of Zen Buddhism.

        Dark islands in the White Sea or mountainous peaks that rise above the clouds: people see what they want to see.

        Arrive early in the morning before the crowds arrive.

        Kyoto doesn't offer any more memorable experiences than this: The isolated contemplation of Ryoanji's enigmatic rock garden.

      • Kitano Tenman-gū Shrine

        Temmangu shrines around the Japan are most often statues of cows and bulls in the seated position (and not because it's about to rain!) These statues are thought to have healing properties.

        There are also thousands of plum trees and these draw the Japanese crowds just before the annual cherry blossom frenzy. They are coming for the deep pink blooms.

        Kitano Temmangu hosts its nationally famous flea market on the 25th of each month, when you'll really see massive hordes of visitors; they come for the items on sale and for rubbing the statues. It is believed that if you rub the same place as a troublesome area on the cow you may get relief from this infirmity or stress. 

        People travel from afar to sift through the offerings of used kimono, antique furniture and ceramics, antique scrolls, crafts, food, household items, and countless other categories of bric-a-brac and sundries, paying prices ranging from the reasonable to the outrageous.

      • Kyoto Prefecture
        If Tokyo is the heart of Japan’s fast-paced, electronic, super-powered rat race, then Kyoto is where it comes down to earth with a culture-heavy, inspiring bump. The former capital (and near namesake of today’s) is cupped by craggy peaks, and hides watery temples, delicate castles and the kind of scenes that bring back the picturesque glories of the movie ‘Memoirs of a Geisha’, and launch them into the present day.

        In fact, Kyoto rightly gains comparisons a plenty with classic European cities like Rome and Paris, featuring over 2000 temples and shrines, an astonishing seventeen UNESCO World Heritage sites and all the tranquil, perfectly-ordered temple gardens you could ever hope for. Follow the floaty dresses of the locals around the bamboo-encircled pathways to the tiny poets huts in the hills, and wonder the arching, spacey world of misty, mazed temples and delicate paper walls.

        If there’s one complaint about Kyoto, it’s that it’s beauty’s not as explicit as you might expect. Like many things in life, though, this city rewards perseverance. Get past the humid summers and painfully cold winters (worth enduring, perhaps, if only for the picture perfect images of Kyoto in snow) and you’ll find the origin of plenty of Japan’s defining images, from delicate temples to the seemingly countless vending machines.

        Ryoan-Ji and Ginkaku-Ji are the key temples, steeped in a Zen-influenced calm that’ll have you drifting around in silence, wondering how the world can possibly be so ordered and so clean, yet still so beautiful. In some of the smaller temples you can don robes and quirky slippers and sample monkdom, while another key taste of the city of culture can be found at Niji Castle, where delicate black on white paintings hang on every wall, and you can almost picture a Shogan stand off taking place over the towering walls. The Gion area of the city still houses the small bars and restaurants and is the place where you can spot a geisha during the day or night.

        There’s no better taste of Japanese culture and history to be found then the near-limitless supply of ancient must-sees on offer in Kyoto. To miss it off a Japanese itinerary would be utter insanity. Dig deep, explore hard, and go home with a kimono in your backpack and a tranquil smile on your face.

      • Kyoto Imperial Palace

        The present buildings are a 1800s reconstruction; the original 8th-century Imperial Palace was destroyed in one of Kyoto's fires which ravaged the previous buildings.

        As you pass through the Seishomon Gate on the western side you will enter the Shishinden ceremonial hall. Here emperors are enthroned this is a privilege retained by the city of Kyoto even after the move to Tokyo, and it is where New Year's audiences are also held.

      • Kofukuji

        Often overlooked by visitors, but worth a visit: Kompukuji is a dry landscape garden with a steep bank of azaleas, this temple is affiliated with the Rinzai school of Zen, but also has literary associations with two of Japan's greatest haiku master: Basho and Buson.

      • Nijo Castle Ninomaru palace
        Nijo Castle is a poignant monument to the ironic twists of history. Built by ieyasu Tokugawa in 1603 for his occasional, reluctant visits to Kyoto (under imperial command), the castle was taken over by the Emperor Meiji after the restoration of 1868. It was here that the emperor signed the edict abolishing the shogunate and sent his carpenters round the castle to replace the Tokugawa hollyhock crest with the imperial chrysanthemum.

      • Kyoto

        So well know is the name Kyoto that it conjures up images of the exotic foreign for millions around the world.

        True: as here you will discover temples, shrines and pagodas: many magnificent and exquisite Zen gardens; enjoy sumptuous traditional feasts; and, of course, that most alluring and misunderstood of earthly creatures: the kimono-clad geisha.

        Kyoto is the national center for such traditional disciplines as cha-do (tea ceremony) and ikebana (flower arranging), the birthplace of kabuki, and the leading center of calligraphy, painting, and sculpture.

        The city has a unique place in the Japanese national identity, and one-third of Japan's entire population is estimated to visit the city each year. Despite this, in many ways Kyoto is a surprisingly typical modern Japanese city with the usual nondescript concrete buildings along with the remarkable pockets of culture and beauty.

        For a thousand years, Kyoto served as the cultural and spiritual capital of Japanese civilization, the home of its revered emperors after the Nara period from the end of the 8th century up to the Meiji Restoration in the late-19th century. The imperial rulers moved the capital to Kyoto originally to escape from the growing domination of the Buddhist authorities of Nara. In the new capital the building of Buddhist temples was actually briefly banned—ironic in a city now universally renowned for its temples.

        Kyoto simply means "Capital City," though it was originally known as Heian-kyo ("Capital of Peace"), the name given to the golden Heian era between the tenth and 12th centuries. During this time Kyoto thrived as Japan's cultural and creative heartland. But the city's fortunes turned during the Warring States period (1467-1568), which was finally ended by the unifying warlords Nobunaga and Hideyoshi in the mid-6th century.

        In many ways the city has never recovered from Hideyoshi's subsequent decision to move the national capital from Kyoto to Edo (now Tokyo) in the early 1600s—a blow compounded by the young Emperor Meiji shifting the imperial household to Tokyo in 1868. But Kyoto has nevertheless remained the repository of the nation's noblest cultural pursuits and architectural legacy.

        • ** Sanshuji Temple 讃州寺 : According to wikipedia the official name of the temple is Keizokuzan Sanshuji Temple. It belongs to Rinzai sect of Buddhism. This temple is located in the town of Senzoku-cho around the bottom of Senzoku-saka slope. According to the history of the temple it was built in 1652. It was relocated from Sanshuji-cho in Kamigyo-ku. The temple bears the title of Daitokuji since it was relocated by the 2nd chief priest of Gyokurin-in temple of Daitokuji. The large Shinboku ( devine tree ) is believed to be more than 350 years old and it has 5 large trunks standing tall right next to the main hall. ( Trans-word+ : TGM Kyoto Guide )
        • It is a hidden sight of autumn leaves (super well) where the Kyoto blog "Oshiki!" Was introduced as a temple where no one came from Kyoto and Takamine to introduce it.
