東福寺から徒歩で訪問しました。 20分程度で到着しますが、かなり細い道を通りますのでGoogleMAPを使用した方が迷わないでしょう。 中は混雑していました。 ゆっくり観られないので、その点は残念です。 more »We visited on foot from Tofukuji Temple. It will arrive in about 20 minutes, but you won't hesitate to use GoogleMAP because it will take a pretty narrow road. The inside was crowded. I can't watch it slowly, so i'm sorry about that.
