Honestly, I haven't counted them. But we really saw a lot of temples in Kyoto. I had to rest sometimes outside and Heike went alone because I was completely templed out. We spent a summy and really hot week in Japan travelling to Kyoto and Tokyo. When not marvelling at temples, shrines and beautiful gardens we inspected suspicious food on our dinner plates, tried to speak Japanes (made everyone laugh) and sampled fine Sake in quiet bars. Some photos below. Please bear with me in case I got the temples names wrong ...
