Located on the way up to Yoshimine-dera, Jūrin-ji (also known as Narihira-dera) is best known for its wheeping cherry tree in spring. Not visible from the street at all, this temple nestled into the mountain probably remains one of Kyoto's last hidden gems. There is a small wet-landscape garden along the way to the main hall, a strolling path up the mountain to overlook the temple, and an inner moss/karesansui-style garden visible from the temple's rooms.

Admission: open year-round.
Nearby places of interest: Yoshimine-dera, Sankō-ji, Oharano Area.
