Story & Recommendation
A temple with a tranquil atmosphere in a business area
The Karasuma area is known as the business district in Kyoto and is usually very busy. However, if you come to Rokkaku-do Temple, you can feel a tranquil and calm atmosphere in the center of this busy area. This temple was established by Shotoku Taishi who is a semi-legendary regent and a politician of the Asuka period in Japan. It is also known as the birthplace of Ikebana, Japanese flower arrangement, as a famous monk dedicated arranged flowers every morning and night. There are many pretty jizo, the guardian deity of children, in this temple, so please check them out!
