Ninna-ji Temple was founded in 888 by the 59th emperor, Emperor Uda. It was designated a World Heritage Site in 1994, and is home to Japanese national treasures and several important cultural properties. The temple is now the headquarters of the Omuro School of the Shingon Sect of Buddhism. The headquarters of the nationally known Omuro School of Flower Arrangement is also housed at the temple.
The temple has a very long history here in Kyoto, and we are happy to share that history in English on this blog. This blog is currently on hiatus, but please enjoy the archived posts.
Any visitors interested in staying overnight at Ninna-ji Temple can find a full explanation in English here.
