About Jakkoin Temple
Jakkoin is Tendai nunnery. It is said that Shotokutaishi was opened in 594 for the Bodhi of the Emperor Yomei who is his father.
It is the same as the house which seems to be ohara from the approach, Jakkoin has a polytrichum-covered Japan garden, this is also very tasteful. It might be unsatisfactory when coming to sightseeing for only here in a small temple, and so I think it would be nice to visit with Sanzenin nearby.
The place of Ohara with Jakkoin is considerably cooler than Kyoto city in summer, so you can enjoy it as a summer resort. Here is a reputation for the beautiful maple leaves, so you can enjoy visiting for an excursion for viewing scarlet maple leaves in late autumn. Personally, I like the garden here.
