Sanjusangendo is a hall that houses statues of Kannon, the bodhisattva of mercy, as well as some Japanese deities that had become bodhisattva as well. Pictures aren’t allowed inside the hall and due to it being located at the southern tip of Higashiyama and almost in line with Kyoto station, it makes for a good starting point when exploring Higashiyama’s temples.
