Giō-ji Temple

Local nameGiouji Temple
LocationUkyō-ku, Kyoto, Japan

A beautiful temple with amazing atmosphere of peace and silence. There is a wonderful moss garden surrounding the temple. The one color that will enchant you once here is green and such lush and tranquil environment will have a very soothing effect on you. It is also not as busy as other temples.
