Kyoto is a relatively small town, its expansion limited by the mountains that surround it in the North, East and West. Yet in terms of sightseeing, in numbers of famous places to visit, it is not a far-fetched truth to say that it is one of the vastest cities in the world.
The Gion district, the Kinkakuji - or Golden Pavilion, area in the Northwest, the Ginkakuji - or Silver Pavilion, area in the Northeast, the Arashiyama area, etc, all would take a whole day to visit properly.
JIJUDEN is conveniently located just south of the Golden Pavilion. There are 3 world heritage sites (Kinkakuji, Ryoanji, Ninnaji) and some famous temples around here, and here we would like to introduce to you some of the notable sights and restaurants in the surrounding area.
