Woodland Kyoto

Hojo-ji Temple

Hojo-ji Temple is located in the Woodland Kyoto area of Kyoto Prefecture near the border with Osaka Prefecture. Hojoji belongs to the Myoshinji school of Rinzai Buddhism. It was built in 1641 and had a strong connection with Emperor Go-Mizunoo and contains art given by the imperial family. The temple grounds are overgrown with giant trees and mossy stone steps lead to the temple under a canopy of trees giving the temple an unexplored atmosphere. The temple is also famous for its autumn leaves which cover the entire temple in golden leaves and is designated as a scenic spot by Kyoto Prefecture.
