Jojakko-ji Temple

Famous for its beautiful Autumn colours, Jojakko-ji is situated on the side of a mountain in Arashiyama and was established in 1596.

The Taho-to pagoda, which is designated by the national government as an Important Cultural Property, was constructed in the 17th century. It is built in the gorgeous 16th-century Momoyama style and affords a spectacular view of the city of Kyoto.

Outside of the Autumn leaves season, the temple isn’t particularly crowded and can be a lovely and peaceful spot to relax for a while and admire both the views and temple buildings.
