Things to know

Daigoji Temple is Buddhist temple in the southeastern mountains of Kyoto. It belongs to the esoteric Shingon tradition that puts emphasis on rituals to achieve enlightenment in this very body. Daigoji Temple is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The grounds belonging to the temple are vast and stretch well into the mountains, parts are also connected to hiking trails. Highlights of the temple include its landscaped gardens and some historical buildings that have stood the test of time, including a five-storied pagoda from the 10th century. Because many temples were burned down and reconstructed throughout Kyoto's turbulent history, it is rare to find ancient, original buildings dating from the Heian period well-preserved (794-1185).
