Not my favorite spot but the two mound sands raked to perfection and a thatched gate distinct Honen-in Temple from the rest of the temples in Kyoto, Japan. A very serene and secluded temple just 10-minute walk from Ginkaku-ji, Honen-in was established to honor Honen, the founder of the Jodo sect in 1681.
The temple is open to public throughout the year but the buildings of the temple are only open to the public twice a year, April 1 through 7 and November 1 to 7.

I can’t, can not, wait to explore Japan. I’m so fortunate to be here. I probably will only visit Kyoto once. So, if you can suggest me the best of Kyoto, that’ll be great. High five for us being here. And oooh, sssshhh, I haven’t talked on my blog about me being here in Japan.
Awesome Rommel! You are in a perfect place. I have been blogging a few about Japan though I still have a lot to catch up. You have to go to Kyoto. You should not miss it especially in Autumn. Keep us posted but try not to make me fall deeper for Kyoto okay, hehe.
It is hooootttt in herrrreeee!!! How do you tolerate the heat during all those traveling? I’m worried about the heat, and makes me limit my travels.
Oh God, summer here is crazy. But it is autumn soon so hang in there a bit :)
