Kyoto may be home to many tourist attraction sites, but it is also the hottest prefecture in west Japan, making it hard to navigate the quaint streets in the insane temperatures.

Luckily, there is a retreat in the form of Saihōji, also known as kokedera (moss temple), as it is famous for the massive spread of moss accross its temple floors. This also means that the abundance of greenery can shield you from the heat that is often reflected from concrete grounds! Stepping into the temple can feel like entering nature’s air-conditioned area.
