Sakura at Toji, Kyoto

Toji pagoda Sakura
If I had to pick my favourite temple that I've been to this year, Toji is the first place that comes to mind. The iconic pagoda is the tallest in Japan, and is one of the symbols of Kyoto. When I went it was so peaceful- even though it's a large and historic temple, it's in the south of Kyoto away from the more popular Higashiyama area. So, when I took my family there in spring it made for a really peaceful morning away from the busy-ness which was Kyoto in sakura season. Toji actually has some amazing sakura too, and we were there at the perfect time- the blossoms were basically at full bloom, and were already starting to scatter. But I think Toij would be lovely in any season, and I'd super recommend putting it on your Kyoto itinerary if you get the chance! It's just five minutes on the Kintetsu line from Kyoto station, and if you go there on the 21st of the month there's a flea market there too.

Ok, enough of the Toji sales pitch, here are some of the pictures I took there:
