Enko-ji is located in northern Kyoto. It provides lovely views of greenery in summer and stunning autumn colours in late November.
Tanukidani Fudo-in is certainly be a temple that kids would enjoy. There are 250 steps to be counted, and tanuki to help you to keep count of the steps!
This area is a good place to wander around. Enko-ji. Shisen-do, Manshu-in and the Kitashirakawa area have an appealing, faded, past their prime atmosphere.
