There are two recommended walking courses. The 90-min. Course lets you explore every corner of Byodoin Temple. The 50-min. Course introduces major attractions in the precinct.
- 90-min. Course
- 50-min. Course
A special course exploring every corner of Byodoin Temple.
After entering the precinct, come to the reception office for visiting the interior of Phoenix Hall (Hou-ou-do) and reserve your visiting time. The timing and number of visitors entering the interior at one time is limited.
In addition to the basic 50-min. Course, why not receive the Goshuin (a temple stamp which a visitor can receive when visiting the temple), browse for gifts in the museum shop, and enjoy a pleasant break with fine Uji green tea at the Tea Salon Toka.
Stop at the Former South Gate, the sub-temples behind Phoenix Hall, the Ougi-no Shiba lawn area and many other spots which tell of the long history of Byodoin Temple.
