2014 Soken-in Temple
If you are in Kyoto between early October to early December, I suggest you visit Soken-in Temple located at Daitokuji. Soken-in is only open to the public in the fall. It has a huge statue of Oda Nobunaga, his grave along with his sons, the grave of his daughter Gotoku, and the grave of his wife Nohime and concubine Onabe no Kata. I usually visit Soken-in every year since it is a rare treat. The temple also has beautiful tea rooms as well. Usually, there is a volunteer (Japanese only) who guides you along with a group through the temple grounds.
Here a post from last year:http://otsuke.blogspot.com/2013/06/soken-in-temple.html
Nobunaga no tame!
