Kodai-ji（高台寺） is located at Higashiyama(東山), Kyoto. It’s around Gion(祇園) ,that area includes very good places to see and eat something. You can see a lot of things with walking.
To explain about Kodai-ji, it was built for praying the death of Toyotomi Hideyoshi(豊臣秀吉), who was the former samurai between Sengoku period(戦国時代) and Aduchi-Momoyama period(安土桃山時代). The founder of this temple is Nene(ねね),who was the wife of Toyotomi. After the death of Tyotomi and marriage of Senhime(千姫), she became a priest and built Kodai-ji.
Going straightly this road, you can arrive at Kodai-ji.
After finishing to walk stairs, the building appears.
To enter the inside of Kodai-ji, you must buy the ticket at the reception in here.(It costs ¥600/per an adult(at Kodai-Ji and museum) .If you choose the ticket for watching Kodai-ji ,museum and Entokuin, it costs ¥900/per an adult).(Website : http://www.kodaiji.com/e_index.html)
Because of time, I see Kodai-Ji and museum only this time. But I’m going to visit Entokuin,too 🙂
It is possible to watch the inside of some halls,but it isn’t allowed to take photos.
During walking down from the top, there’s bamboo thicket.
I recommend to eat delicious Warabi-mochi store near from here if you feel to be relax after walking.
I took out this, the next time I’ll enjoy sweets in here 😀
There’s beautiful garden and varicoloured carps ! You can check it out more Kodaiji Rakusho – TripAdvisor
