Hogon-in Temple

Traveler Friendly
This temple is located in Arashiyama where there are a great number of other sightseeing spots too, so this temple should be easy to include in your travel itinerary. The temple is normally open to the public so I recommend checking out if they are open during your visit before going there.

Story & Recommendation
Hogon-in is a beautiful temple in Arashiyama which looks pretty in green in spring and exceptional in autumn with the autumn foliage
Hogon-in Temple (Hogonin) is a sub-temple of the most famous temple in Arashiyama, Tenryu-ji Temple. This quiet temple is only open to the public two times a year, in spring when the green leaves are pretty, and in autumn when the vivid autumn leaves are beautiful. Just a short walk away from Tenryu-ji Temple which is always busy with tourists, you can get to this quiet small temple. There are many plants and flowers in the garden of the temple, and you can enjoy this strolling garden by following the path that goes around it, and although the temple and the garden are not that big, I am sure you will enjoy both. If you head to Arashiyama, don’t forget about Hogon-in Temple.
