Visit to Kyoto’s Moss Temple

Set foot upon Saihoji Temple in Kyoto, one of the most difficult destinations to access in the world, and enjoy the site all to yourself. 

As an ancient Buddhist practice to cleanse one’s mind, you will begin your visit by copying Buddhist sutras, before being given permission to enter the temple. 

Marvel at the temple’s extraordinary history. Dating back to the 6th century, it used to be a villa belonging to a prince who helped spread Buddhism across Japan. 

The crown jewel of the temple is its moss garden. Wander into a sea of green and soak in a zen ambiance that has inspired some of the most creative geniuses, including Steve Jobs!
