What travelers say:

Traveling to Japan, this stop came to Kyoto, and we went to Arashiyama for a day. We rented a bicycle in Arashiyama and rode the car to travel to various attractions. The location of Daikaku Temple was a bit off. We went to Arashiyama Park. I plan to go to Dajue Temple, but I haven’t seen any signs along the way. I rely on navigation to lead the way and ask passers-by before I get to the destination. On the way, I pass residential areas, schools, community activity areas, etc., from the crowded tourist center The zone ran to a relatively remote place and almost gave up. Dajue Temple is the Daben Mountain of the old Saga Imperial Palace. This attraction is divided into two parts. There is no charge for the gate of Dajue Temple. It is free to visit, but you need to pay for the worship. There should be a specified time. I will come. There was no worship activity on the day of arrival. Seeing that there has been a special person in the courtyard taking care of the beautification of the environment, the trees are carefully cut, and there is a cherry blossom trail outside the temple, with pink cherry blossoms blooming at both ends. Going further in is the garden. In the early Heian period, this was the new room and the detached palace where Emperor Saga and Empress Tanlin were married. This is the predecessor of Daikaku-ji Temple. The lake in the garden is the oldest garden pond in Japan. There are also scenic spots in the garden, such as the Chendian Hall, the Imperial Shadow Hall, the Main Chamber, the Five Halls, the Lefeng Heart Sutra Hall, the Regent Gate, and the Heart Sutra Pagoda. There are many cherry blossom trees in the garden. Although they are not in a single piece, the cherry blossoms bloom very brilliantly. There are snow white and pink. Different kinds of cherry blossoms are blooming. It is a pity that it is an old cherry tree by the lake. I was knocked down by a typhoon last year, and I have not had time to move away. In the lake, there are mandarin ducks playing in the water, birds flying low, and few tourists. Because this garden requires a fee to enter, and the location is very remote, tourist groups do not come here, so it is very quiet.
