Adashino Nembutsu-ji Temple

Adashino is mentioned in a poem towards the end of The Tale of Genji.

The area was originally a cremation ground, with stone gravemarkers dotted around the surrounding bamboo forests.

About a century ago, these gravestones dating from Heian times were gathered up and placed in Adashino Nembutsu-ji Temple. The temple also contains a scale replica of the 1st-century stupa at Sanchi, in central India.

Otagi Nembutsu-ji Temple

Otagi Nembutsu-ji was originally a temple in Kyoto's ancient burning ground. Flooding forced it to move to a site northwest of Kyoto. It is famous for its stone sculptures of rakan (arhats).
