If you travel to Arashiyama (嵐山), Tenryu-ji would undoubtedly be on your list of places to visit. It’s ranked first among the “Top Five Zen Temples” in Kyoto and is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I honestly don’t remember too much about the design and history of this particular temple complex (it is, after all, our 3rd temple for the day), other than the fact that it is majestically beautiful. Let’s just proceed with the pictures and let those speak for themselves.


To get there: If you visit Tenryuji after Kinkakuji/Ryoanji like we did, take the small Keifuku train and get off at the Arashiyama terminal station. If you are coming from elsewhere, take the JR Sagano Line from Kyoto Station and get off at JR Saga-Arashiyama Station.
