Ninna-ji Temple is the head temple of the Omuro school of the Shingon Sect of Buddhism, located in north-west Kyoto. It was first founded in AD 888 by Emperor Uda, so it is deeply related with the Imperial Family of Japan. This prestigious temple has a very long history. Since its founding, Ninna-ji has housed and protected countless national treasures and other cultural artifacts. Also, it is part of the Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Ninna-ji Temple has a beautiful Japanese garden. From the garden of the Goten Palace you can see breath-taking scenery of the Five-Storied Pagoda. It is the only temple in Kyoto that has a garden from where you can see a five-storied pagoda.
