|This Zen temple is admired for a 'wabi-sabi' quality: 'imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.' If only people admired that quality in taxes and term papers!|
|The temple's gate is the setting for a classic play about Ishikawa Goemon, the legendary 16th-century outlaw who stole gold to give to the poor — in other words, the Japanese Robin Hood!|
|Ancient legend has it that if you survive the 43-foot jump from this temple, your wish will come true. Good thing there's no way to test this! Jumping from the top is now prohibited.|
|4||Daigo-ji Temple Goju Tower||31-40|
|The finial of Kyoto's oldest building is said to repel evil. Since it is also the only survivor of devastating fires - the protection must be working!|
|5||Fushimi Inari Shrine||41-50|
|The shrine is dotted with hundreds of sacred stone foxes - the messengers of Inari, deity of rice and sake. We hop the message isn't that mortals are easily outfoxed!|
|6||Gion Kobe Kaburenjo Theater||51-60|
|Kyoto was replaced as Japan's capital in 1869. As a consolation, the secretive geisha community started giving annual public performances at this venue - and the tradition was still going strong in 1969!|
|This temple sits beneath a giant statue of Kannon, goddess of Mercy. Since she is a guardian of everything from national prosperity to highway traffic safety, Buddhist art helpfully depicts her with thousands of arms.|
|8||The Museum of Kyoto||71-80|
|The 1906 Western-style red brick building was once a branch of the Bank of Japan. The bank's giant safe is now the museum's Tea Room, yielding high interest for thirsty tourists!|
|The legendary blacksmith's shop Aritsugu now sells the world's best cooking knives, but it was founded in 1560 to produce something even sharper: samurai swords!|
|10||Kyoto Imperial Palace||91-100|
|A symbolic monkey safeguards the traditionally 'unlucky' corner of this palace. The monkey is encased in wire gauze to ensure that he doesn't escape to do evil!|
|An ancient rite encourages local 13-year-olds to cross this bridge without looking back at their parents. Why? It's said to be bad luck for life to do so!|
|The floors of the shogun's lavish living quarters squeaked to warn him of enemies approaching - and as an added safety measure, his attendants were all female!|
