Perfect for the solo traveler. Why not visit some charming, little-known spots in Kyoto?

  • KYOTO
  • RECOMMENDED
  • Travel to go with more than one person is fun.
    But , traveling alone will be a good opportunity to reconsider their own .
    This time , I will introduce 7 perfect spots to one journey .

    Genkoan

    Genkoan is a famous Zen temple, known for its two windows. A square window, known as the Window of Hesitation and a round window, known as the Window of Enlightenment.
    View the garden through these two windows and come to terms with yourself.

    Rengeji temple

    At Rengeji, you will be able to see a small but beautiful garden with a pond at the center and lovely autumn leaves. This spot is a well-kept secret!
    A little way away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this temple is a place where you can quietly pass the time.
    On a rainy day, the moisture makes the greenery and moss in the temple grounds looks even more beautiful.

    jikishian

    Jikishian is a small thatched building, nestled away in a bamboo grove. Although known as a great place for viewing autumn leaves, you can also see wild cherry blossoms and hydrangeas here, making it a beautiful spot throughout the ear.
    There is also a book that contains personal memories of the travelers that have visited.
    This is a place that can refresh the heart of a solo traveler.

    京都 常寂光寺 今週のおススメ🍁 2018/11/26撮影 #今すぐカメラ持ってゴーしたい日本の絶景シリーズ 厳しと言われている今年の紅葉ですが、常寂光寺は一際存在感を発揮しておりました😊 ご覧の通りで、もう一押しです。 今週行かれるならココですね。 行かれる方は、朝一番を おススメします(理想は、東福寺朝イチ ピカリを撮影後、行かれるのが理想) 朝露で苔もモミジもしっとり美しいです。 他には宝厳院、宝筐院、厭離庵あたりもタイミング的に良いはずです。今年は、直指庵や祇王寺も行きましたが、厳しそうだったのでどう回るかによって印象が変わる年ですね🍁 あと、個人的な見解ですが、いつもは一押しの圓光寺や瑠璃光院の東川ルートも今の紅葉の状態を考えると無理していく感じではないかなと🤔 . もっと言えば、滋賀の教林坊がベストかもです🍁 自分ならこっちかな😊 #京都#紅葉#常寂光寺 #そうだ京都行こう #kyoto #はなまっぷ #wp_flower #travel#instagood #カメラ持ってゴー #ファインダー越しの私の世界 #写真好きな人と繋がりたい #instagramjapan #japan_of_insta #japan_night_view #icu_japan #igs_world#japan_of_insta #tokyocameraclub #art_of_japan_ #travelgram #instatravel #travelphotography #visitjapanjp #naturephotography #nature_wizards #nature_shooters #nature_of_our_world #500px #nationalgeographic

    From the grounds of Jojakkoji Temple, you can command a sweeping view of Sagano Kyoto. While its autumn leaves are wonderful, you also can enjoy the green beauty of this place in other seasons. Its quiet atmosphere will soothe you.

    Venture into the bamboo grove of Shisendo Temple and discover a separate world with cozy buildings and beautiful gardens.
    Sit in one of the rooms and gaze out at gardens. That time will become an unforgettable memory.

    A cafe in a one-room apartment. Speaking or making a noise is forbidden.
    With peaceful music playing in the background, you can enjoy reading or slowly drinking your tea.
