Toji Temple Hotels

Toji Temple is a serene Buddhist temple based in a lush green park, just southwest of Kyoto Station, in the sprawling Japanese city of Kyoto. The tranquil temple grounds are specked with shimmering turquoise ponds, where koi and turtles swim. Every month, a bouncing flea market is held here, where bargain hunters busily barter over antiques, art works, and local pottery. Kyoto is rich with similar temples, shrines, and traditional gardens - but it also boasts a buzzing nightlife and a glitzy shopping scene.

Things to see

Start your sun-blushed Kyoto day by exploring Toji Temple. This UNESCO World Heritage Sight houses the Edo-period timber-and-tile Kondo Hall, the 57 metre-tall 5 storey pagoda - the tallest in Kyoto - and the stately Homotsukan Museum, which houses gold-flecked Buddha statues and old-world artefacts. Afterwards, continue your tour of Kyoto’s top temples at the northwestern Kinkaku-ji, a peaceful Buddhist temple richly decorated with glistening gold-leaf. Sit on the banks of the perfectly-still pond, and watch the sunlight bounce from the Kinkaku-ji, creating a mirror-like reflection of the building in the blue-green waters.

Later, visit the mountainside Fushimi Inari Shrine, and walk through its brilliant-orange torii - traditional Japanese gates. As the afternoon rolls around, art-fiends should explore the Kyoto National Museum - which houses pre-modern Japanese and Asian artwork - while shoppers splurge in the ritzy department stores along central Shijo Street.

Where to stay

The area surrounding Toji Temple is ideal for those looking for a laid-back urban atmosphere with easy access to the hustle and bustle of Kyoto’s downtown shopping and nightlife scene. Just north of Toji Temple you’ll find the lush Umekoji Park, with its sweeping gardens and family-fun Aquarium. To the northeast, you’ll discover the vast multi-storey department stores, steamy miso restaurants, and snazzy cocktail bars of the Kyoto Station area. For a taste of traditional Kyoto living, consider staying a little further north of Toji Temple, in the Nishijin neighbourhood - an old-town area saturated in historic weaving houses, tiny temples, and museums.

How to get to Toji Temple

Catch a flight from one of many top European cities - including Amsterdam and Paris - direct to Kansai International Airport, based just outside the city of Osaka, 100 kilometres from Kyoto. From there, catch a speedy Haruka Limited Express train - which run every 30 to 60 minutes - direct from the airport to Kyoto Station. The relaxing ride should take around 75 minutes. From Kyoto Station, it’s a quick ride on the Kintetsu-Kyoto train line to Toji station. To get around the rest of the city, make use of the vast public transport network, which includes subways, trains, trams, and buses.
