Great little place up along the Higashiyama mountains that is off the philosophers path in eastern Kyoto. The temple is small but a pleasure to stop at. There are stairs to raise up into deep shade and the thatched gated entrance is nice. There are two mounds that sit right before you as you enter. They are supposedly to purify you as you enter. I was there in the afternoon and had to wait a long while before I could take this without anyone in the picture.
