Kyoto is known for its hundreds of temples and shrines dotting the city. Quite a few are UNESCO World Heritage listed, and even those that aren’t offer beauty and charm in their art, gardens, or architecture. And maybe a sense of spirituality. You know. If you’re into that kind of stuff. But while entrance fees are usually under 1,000 yen, going temple-hopping in Kyoto quickly adds up. What’s the cheapo way of temple-hopping in Kyoto? Go shrine-hopping instead!

Not mentioned in the article are the Honganji temples near Kyoto station. Open from early in the day and having free admission, they are great places to visit. Do not forget to see the long rope made with human hair, used for reconstruction!
