Tenryū-ji Kyoto

Tenryū-ji kyoto


Tenryu-ji was established in 1339 by the shogun Ashikaga Takauji (1305-1358) in memory of Emperor Go-Daigo (1288-1339), with the eminent Zen master Muso Soseki (1275-1351) appointed as founding abbot. Landed estates were donated to the new temple to help fund its construction, but as the resulting revenues proved insufficient Muso Soseki and Ashikaga Tadayoshi devised a plan to send two trading ships to China and use the resulting profits to complete Tenryu-ji’s construction. This plan was a great success, and the temple was officially consecrated in 1345. It was designated first among Kyoto’s Five Mountains (the city’s five major Zen temples), a ranking it maintains to the present day.

Buckwheat Noodle (Soba) Eishou-Tei



This famous Buck wheat noodle restaurant established in the Meiji era (1890) is easy to miss but very popular with locals.

For anyone who’s never tried soba before, I recommend the simple kake soba or cold Zaru soba to start off.
