Tips from the community

Just southeast of Kyoto sits Daigo-ji: a Shingon buddhist temple and UNESCO world heritage site. Visit during autumn to see the colorful Benten Pond set ablaze with vibrant red leaves. Within the fiery foliage, you’ll find a five storied pagoda that dates back to the 9th century. It’s the epitome of Kyoto’s historical charm.
