Its entrance fee felt a bit much... still thought they have preserved their garden and temple to excellency. Maybe this place will become much more appreciating if I ever get to have an opportunity to visit here during the summer or autumn.

Visited in winter, so sadly didn’t get to see the beautiful colours of the garden. However a staff member was giving tours of the grounds. He was very knowledgeable and a good speaker, trying to get everyone involved. He even took photos for everyone. It really made the experience!

komatsukan provided a shuttle to town for the lighting up view of the 2 temples entsuin & zuiganji entsuin has beautiful garden, lightings and a magical litted pond with incredible reflections(similar to kiyomizu in kyoto)..I don’t really like the artificial colour lights 2.11.2023

We visited both the night time and day time. The entrance fee for night time is more than 4 times of the day time. I personally don’t think it’s worth it. The maple leaves were not well illuminated and less than half of the maple trees turned to fall colors. Day time visit was much better but still the fall colors were not yet ready in our time of visit when was early Nov.

The day time entrance fee for each adult is 300 Yen while the light up night time entrance fee is 1,300 Yen. While the fall foliage views are good, there are too many people especially at night (even on a weekday). No tripods are allowed and it is difficult to take clear photos of the red leaves at night. Day visit is recommended.
