Shisen-do Temple & Ichijoji

When you visit the famous Shisendo Temple on the quiet outskirts of the city, it is so peaceful that you might forget about the passage of time altogether. Ichijoji is located about 15 …more minutes from this small temple on foot, and it is quite an entertaining area, with a wide variety of things to do.

There is a wide array of independent cafes and shops of all kinds, which are frequented by those with discerning tastes. Kyoto is a student town, and Ichijoji has an especially high student population, so it is also famous as a hotspot for ramen.
