DAITOKU-JI TEMPLE

Founded in 1319, a large temple complex almost next door to Murasakino Guesthouse. The complex consists of 22 sub-temples. One of the best places to see a wide variety of Zen gardens and to experience Zen culture and architecture. It is also famous for tea ceremony.

IMAMIYA SHRINE

Founded over 1000 years ago to pray for protection from plague. The shrine complex is embedded in a forest of large trees. You should also try the famous Aburi-mochi (grilled rice dumpling with sweet miso sauce) just next to the shrine at beautiful traditional tea-houses.

FUNAOKAYAMA HILL AND KENKUN SHRINE

A small green hill that is popular with locals and has a small Shinto shrine on top and some nice views over the city.

RIVER KAMO

Bit further away from Murasakino Guesthouse (18 minutes on foot) but still easy to reach on bicycle is the Kamo river which runs from north to south and is very popular among locals to hang out and have fun.

KYOTO BOTANICAL GARDEN

The oldest and most comprehensive public botanical garden in Japan. With seasonal plants and various conservatories, the Gardens can be enjoyed all year round. There are a big kids’ play facility and a large lawn field among many other things that are fun for young children to explore too.

OTHERS

There are many other interesting spots in the neighbourhood such as quaint café, unique public bath and local shopping street.

Kyoto city

Kyoto is an old capital of Japan which has over 1200 years of history and 3000 temples and shrines. It is the heart of Japanese traditional culture. The city is surrounded by nature and many beautiful spots so it is more relaxing than big cities like Tokyo or Osaka. You will need at least 3 days to see the main attractions of Kyoto.
