Lonely Planet review for Nyoirin-ji
Take the left fork on the road just above Yoshimizu-jinja and the dilapidated Katte-jinja (勝手神社) shrine to reach Nyoirin-ji, a temple that preserves both the relics of Emperor Go-Daigo's unlucky court and his tomb itself.
The right fork leads uphill, where you will soon pass the two recommended accommodation options here, Kizō-in (喜蔵院) on your left and then Chikurin-in (竹林院) on the right, which has a wonderful garden.
A few minutes' walk further on there is another fork, where you'll find a wooden torii and some steps leading up to a shrine. Take the left fork and the next right up the hill for the 3km hike to Kimpu-jinja (金峯神社), a small shrine in a pleasantly wooded mountain setting.
