Tenryu-ji Temple

The Tenryu-ji Temple ( a World Cultural Heritage Site) was the first stop on our taxi tour of Kyoto, Japan. Our tour  was a full day, whirlwind tour of the best of Kyoto.

Tenryu-ji ('Temple of the Hevenly Dragon),  is a Buddhist temple dating back to 1339. The site has a history of fires, so the current buildings only date back to the late 1800's. This was another shoes off experience.

Such a shame that we didn't have more time. I would have loved to explore all the buildings and gardens some more. I think it could be the kind of place to come and spend a whole day, we only had limited time as there were a few more stops ahead in our day.
