Ninnaji Temple is another UNESCO World Heritage site in Kyoto and one of the largest and most prestigious temples in the city. This temple was founded in 888. Its large temple gate, bell tower, main temple hall, Kannondo hall and 5-story pagoda draw less tourists than other sites here, so enjoy it at your leisure.

A 2-minute walk from the main temple gate, head to the wooden building housing the Omuro-Ninnaji Station of the Randen Line – a small one-car train running around the Arashiyama District. Be sure to hop on one when you go back to center of the city.
