Chion-in Tours and Tickets

star-5
11 Reviews

The classically curved eaves, ceremonial steps, and oversized two-story gateway mark Chion-in as something special, even in temple-filled Kyoto. The main temple of the Jodo school of Buddhism—the largest school of Buddhism in Japan—Chion-in is a very grand affair, focusing on the huge main hall and its image of the sect’s founder, Hōnen.

The video shows the highlights of Higashiyama area of Kyoto which is filled with many attractions. You can relax at home while deeply immersed in the traditional city of Japan with a detailed explanation and guidance by a professional licensed guide. We will have a Q&A session after seeing the video. I provide a walking route map online for your future reference.
