Kaju-ji Temple

 0755710048  Kyoto Kyoutoshi Yamashina-ku Kanshujinioudouchou 27-6

A temple located a six minute walk from Ono Station on the Kyoto Municipal Subway. The Kaju-ji Temple is the head temple of the Yamashina sect of Shingon Buddhism. Deeply connected to the Imperial household and the Fujiwara clan, the temple is famous for its garden and pond, which still look as stately as they did in the Heian period, and a stone lantern believed to have been donated to the temple by the historic figure Tokugawa Mitsukuni. The temple is also a famous place for viewing cherry blossoms, and in spring Yoshino cherries, weeping cherries, and Botan-zakura cherries bloom on the temple grounds. A row of some 40 cherry trees grow along the approach to the temple; reaching full bloom from late March to early April, the area bustles with visitors come to see the blossoms during this time. Hours are from 9:00 to 16:00. Parking available.
