Daitoku-ji Temple Complex, Kyoto

Kyoto, Japan, Asia: The Tofuku-ji Temple
Daitokuji-cho, Murasakino
Japan 603-8231
Tel: 81 75 491 0019's insider take:

A vast, walled-in Zen temple complex dating to the 16th century. There are about two dozen sub-temples here, and eight of them—and their gardens—are open to the public. You could spend a few hours wandering, and easily believe you've gone back in time. Admission to the complex is free, but each individual temple charges an entrance fee. A few also serve macha, whisked green tea, which you can sip while you sit and quietly contemplate the garden.

Open daily 9 am to 4:30 pm.
