Need to book in advance in autumn. Very beautiful with the autumn foliage. Not too crowded so you can enjoy the zen atmosphere. Visited in the first week of December. The foliage was at its peak.

Beautiful and zen place to relax listening to the sound of nature. Visited in the last week of Nov 2023, the momiji colour is beautiful. The number of visitors is not as high as those in popular temples. Love love love the place!

Absolutely gorgeous Zen Buddhist temple with stunning views of the city. If you're here in the fall definitely book a reservation to view their foliage! They also enshrine the thousand armed Kannon and have a mediation room!

Visited during autumn colours and you need reservation!! Luckily was able to reserve on the spot and enter right away. During this season they raise the price to 1000 yen, which I thought was too much for such a small place.

Unreal atmosphere of complete calm at the shrine and garden (once the tourists stop talking.) Best come here on a partly cloudy day to see the garden dramatically change between different hues and lightness.
