Myoushinji temple (Kyoto)

We went to the Myoushinji temple.(MAP)
There were no special meaning to go there, but we often go to the north-east erea of kyoto because we took keihan-train and we seldom go around myoushinji erea (north-west of Kyoto) so I decided to go there.

From our home to the myoushinji temple, it took about 1.5 hour by car, and there are parkinglot so we didn't need to pay a parking charge.

Myoushinji temple is very large and unique temple because it consist of many tacyuu(塔頭) which is small temple gathering around the tomb of founder. And it is Zen Buddhism temple.
It was not crowded and scenary is beautiful so we liked the temple.
