Morning trip to 愛宕念仏寺 Otagi Nenbutsu-ji Temple @京都 Kyoto, Japan

We had been to quite a few temples during our previous trip to Kyoto, and we wanted to check out something new this time. Located near JR嵯峨嵐山駅 JR Saga-Arashiyama Station, we took a bus from the main street in 嵐山 Arashiyama to reach 愛宕念仏寺 Otagi Nenbutsu-ji Temple. The place is not big, but we thought it was very worth the trip to see the Rakan statues!
