It's just a small shrine near Kinkakuji Temple, but the garden is huge.

This temple is well-known for its cherry blossoms, but I believe it's still worth a visit; I find it quite beautiful! It's conveniently located between the Kinkakuji and Kitano Tenmangu, making it a nice addition to a walking itinerary and a pleasant stroll.

While it's a lovely shrine, they block off a majority of the grounds to charge tourists and Japanese alike to see the cherry blossoms. There are places to view all over Kyoto. So unless you want to have a secluded picnic within a red and white barrier, it's not worth paying. I went around the outside and took photos over the top of the barrier. The shrine is still fully accessible.

Very beautiful location. Free to enter and a paid area with extra Sakura to see. Not very big but it’s still very relaxing. A wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature in a busy city. Highly recommended for anyone to enjoy.

Very popular place to go at the moment for Sakura viewing. It costs 500yen to enter the cherry garden but it’s not necessary. The best views are the trees by the western entrance. It’s worth visiting later in April for when the other types of Sakura bloom.
