I needed to get away from the bus tour group after Kinkaku-ji. We were originally planning on going to Arashima bamboo forest but we felt we didn't have time so we decided to go to another temple. 

We ended up at Daikaku-ji temple. It was by far one of the best decisions we made in Kyoto. It was so peaceful and quiet inside the temple. No crazy tour bus crowd. It was surprisingly empty!

I had the chance to take my time walking around the temple. I loved all the gardens and use of wood throughout the buildings. I am so impressed on the preservation of all the buildings/temples in Japan. They really protect their heritage and history. And everything is super clean.

If you want a quieter place to explore, I highly recommend going to Daikaku-ji.
