Shoren-in temple (青蓮院)

The Shoren-in temple is quite discreet compared to its bigger neighbour Chion-in. It certainly feels more secluded, and therefore at the same time, more peaceful. Two walking paths are available, one through the garden with shoes on and one through the building without any shoes as per the Japanese tradition. One can get a glimpse of Kyoto and a great overview of the temple Shoren-in temple, from the uphill section of the garden.
