Daitokuji Temple, Kyoto: 6 reviews and 12 photos
Daitokuji Temple is one of Kyoto's large Zen temple complexes. It was also designated as one of the top five Zen temples at one time. Sections of the complex were destroyed during the Onin Wars in the 15th century but were rebuilt soon after.
Although most people come to visit the subtemples (which I've written about in separate tips), there are some nice sites on the temple grounds that can be viewed for free. The gates and other structures are visible, and some of the buildings and subtemples are open and free to see. There are also teahouses. The temple complex is quite large, so it's nice to walk around and view all of the buildings.
Directions: Near Imamiya Shrine.
