We discovered this pearl by accident. Unlike many of the temples that are among the main attractions in Kyoto, you can move around freely in this temple complex. No barriers or signs prevent you from entering the rooms or other parts of the building. Therefore, the visit to this temple became something very special. Strolling through the rooms, discovering every corner or just sitting on the terrace. While the visitor crowds squeeze through the nearby Ryoan-ji, you can relax here and enjoy the garden – all at your own pace.
The Handara Iconic Gate is a very popular Instagram location. Either you come very early in the morning to take some shots, otherwise you will need some time and nerves. This location is so crowded, that you need to wait 1 hour to get a possibility for a picture without people. Before entering the gate, you will need to pay a fee of IDR 30,000 per person, when you are not located at the resort.
There is not much specials to consider, just enjoy this amazing location.
