Fodor's Review

With a five-tier pagoda at its center, this temple sits in a parklike setting. It's surrounded by late-blooming cherry trees that attract crowds every May. Emperor Omuro's palace stood here in the late 9th century, but the buildings you see today were constructed in the 17th century. The Hon-do (Main Hall), moved here from the Imperial Palace, is well worth a look. Ninna-ji is a 10-minute walk west of Ryoan-ji and a five-minute walk northwest of Myoshin-ji's north gate. Take either Bus 26 or 59 to the Omuro-ninna-ji, or a JR Sagano Line train to Hanazono-cho.
