Myomanji Temple Kyoto

Myomanji Temple Kyoto妙満寺

North of Kitayama, and not far from Entsuji Temple, is the interesting Myomanji Temple.

Myomanji is part of the Nichiren sect and is a relatively new temple.

It is close to and has fabulous views of Mount Hiei.

One of the highlights is a concrete copy of the famed stupa at Bodh Gaya, India. This is where the historical Buddha gained Enlightenment.

Access

A five-minute walk from Kino station (Eiden Line). Twenty minutes on foot from the last stop--Kokusai Kaikan--on the Karasuma subway line.

91 Hataeda-cho, Iwakura, Sakyo-ku, Kyoto.
Tel: 075 791-7171
