To-ji Temple flea market

by traveld

What are the operating hours of the flea market -- on the 21st of every month?

Re: To-ji Temple flea market

by Sakura_Kobe


The market opens from 5:00 am to 4:00 pm (around sun set time). But it varies depend on season and weather. In winter,it is cold so some shops don't open from early moring. Each shop may have its own opening time.

Thank you. Planning to go in April. Is it easy to find from the train station?

Re: To-ji Temple flea market

It is about 10mins walk from Kyoto station (JR and Kintetsu) and about 5 mins walk from Toji station (Kintetsu). On flea market day, bus may not be available.

Have a good time!

Kohrin-In at Daitoku-ju

by hundertmorgen

Kohrin-In was built as the family temple of Seamonno-suke Hatakeyama, Lord of Noto prefecture, about A.D. 1520. The temple took the Buddhist name of the founder. The first priest Shohkei was one of the most distinguished priests Daitoku-ji school has ever produced.

The superior's quarters shows the Muromachi style and is endowed with simple beauty of the age when the building form of temples was influencing the residential form. The front gate is elegant and secure, and is known as a typical work of Muromachi-era.

Kara gate shows the building form of Zen temple very plainly. Kankyo-tei, a tea roon, was named from a poem of great Chinese Poet So Tohba. It was made after the pattern of famous Hassoh-an.

The garden expresses the paradise though of old China. An azalea bush and stones are the symbol of the Elysiam mountain. This garden has "Baidara" tree. In ancients India, they used leaves of the tree of the same sort when the sacred books were recopied. The word Baidara means "leeaves".

Moreover, many Chinese arts of Gen era and many important letters of old times are in Kohrin-in.

Kyoto Station

by stmlnyc

Kyoto is so much more relaxed and quaint than Tokyo. Getting there isn't too difficult albeit a bit pricey.

It takes about 2.5 to 3.5 hours via the JR Shinkansen bullet train from Tokyo to Kyoto for $220-260 round trip depending on the seating...whether reserved or not.

The bus takes about 8 hours but at half the cost. Nara is 1 hour away by train from Kyoto. Kyoto Station is ultra modern and impressive in scale and offers wireless web connectivity for those traveling with laptops.

Tsukimi Soba

by j-san about Misoka-an Kawamichiya

Though the English menu really is very well done, they didn't show my favorite dish! It was only on the Japanese menu!! (on the otherhand the history of the shop was only written on the English menu...) Tsukimi soba. Fresh buckwheat noodles in a hot fish broth with a raw egg, crispy toasted seaweed slices and japanese horseradish!! LOVE this dish!! And served with fragrant green tea.... aaaah heaven on a cold winter's day! 750Yen.

TREE House - Tea house: KODAI-JI

by dogears

Three fantastic tea houses: One at the entry - with a large round window. Perfectly manicured gardens. At the top of the wooded hillside, past the bamboo grove, sits two more tea houses, connected by attractive covered walkways. Unique two-floor tea house design.
Museum and gift stores across the street.
Do not miss the japanese paistry restaurant nearby for one of the best micro-gardens in Kyoto. The rickshaw drivers pull up to a perfect framed window looking into the Kobe fish pond.
