Eikando is very famous for the beautiful autumn leaves. It was named “Eikando of the Autumn Leaves” for the beauty. Eikando is illuminated at night and you’ll be amazed at the scenery. At night, we recommend you to visit the Hojo Pond, attractive spot during the autumn in the Eikando.

Of course, the temple’s main ground is popular autumn color spot but the sub temples, Nanzen-in and Tenju-an are very famous. Tenju-an is illuminated at night, so you can enjoy the combination of autumn leaves, Japanese rock garden and illumination.

No.3 Kodaiji Temple

 

This temple was built the legal wife of Hedeyoshi Toyotomi, a very famous warrior in Japan. Of course, the autumn leaves seen in the day time are beautiful but seen at night are more gorgeous. The water reflects the leaves and the beauty of the reflection is breathtaking.
