Manju-ji (万寿寺) is a Rinzai Buddhist temple in Higashiyama-ku Kyoto, Japan.
Owing to the influence of the Ashikaga, Manju-ji was designated a Jissatsu temple for a time. At present, it is a sub-temple of Tōfuku-ji.
It is considered to be one of the so-called Kyoto Gozan or “five great Zen temples of Kyoto”.

An artistically noteworthy Amida figure is too large to be moved from Manju-ji for display elsewhere.
The temple holds a collection of esoteric Buddhist art which was traditionally used in teaching the salient points in the story of the life of Gautama Buddha.
