Kitano Tenmangu Shrine, Kyoto: 4 reviews and 9 photos

  Kitano Tenman-gu
by gge

When visiting Kyoto most tourists go to see the Golden Pavillon "Kinkaku-ji" in the northern part of the city. If you have enough time you can use the opportunity to have a look to the Shinto Shrine "Kitano Tenman-gu", too. It is around 1500m from Kinkaku-ji and you can reach it by foot or by bus. You can also begin your tour with the Tenman-gu, but if you take the bus to continue your trip to Kinkaku-ji, beware that you not take the wrong direction ? because it is a loop bus and in both directions the sign shows Kinkaku-ji as end of the line. The right direction are only a few busstops, while the other one needs hours!

Each month at the 25th, there is a kind of "flea market" at Kitano Tenmangu, where you can cheaply buy some presents to take home...
