Wander Through Shoren-in Temple

A quiet temple in the Higashiyama hills

Hidden in the Higashiyama hills, not far from the Chion-in Temple, lies the oft-overlooked temple of Shoren-in. Visitors will first be greeted by a room of boldly painted sliding doors and then by a veranda with views of a picturesque garden. Pad softly along the temple's wooden porches before exploring the stone paths of the perfectly-landscaped grounds.With plenty of more celebrated temples in the vicinity, you'll most likely have this one all to yourself.
