Myoshin-ji was founded in 1337 when an abdicated emperor had an imperial villa converted into a Zen temple. The enormous Zen temple complex includes about 50 sub-temples in addition to its main buildings. While a few of the temple halls can be entered, the majority of the sub-temples are closed to the public. However, visitors are free to wander along the many walking paths like this one here.

The quiet atmosphere and the complete lack of electricity poles and wires make this a great place to wander around for an hour or two. You feel that you've time-slipped back to the 14th century.
