About the Shukubo and its Origin

The temple is located in a tranquil place, outside the hasty of center of Kyoto. From the whole area of 20,000 ㎡, about 6,000 ㎡ are occupied by little temples, which is of the same size of one and half of the Koshien Baseball stadium in Hyogo prefecture. Most of the architecture was reconstructed 200 years ago during the Edo era, after the Huge fire in Tenmei time. Among them, 10 buildings including the main hall have been selected as designated cultural property in Kyoto. Within the area, there are lots of kinds of trees and flowers letting you enjoy a lovely view in every season. Especially the cherry blossoms in spring and autumn leaves in autumn are most beautiful. That is the reason why Myokei-ji is popular as a hidden paradise for the photographers. Although it is unclear yet when this temple started the accommodation service exactly, it is said to be already 38th years of its accommodation credibility, based on the materials that state that the temple was permitted for simple accommodation in 1977.
