The Eastern Temple of the Original Vow, the Higashi Honganji is a good place to experience Japanese Buddhism. The temple’s main hall is the largest wooden structure in the city and is dedicated to Shinran. Located next to the Goeido (main hall) is the spectacular Amidado Hall which is dedicated to the Amida Buddha. Together with Nishi Honganji, these two shrines are called the Hoganji temples and are a must visit for anyone going to Kyoto.
