Travel Tips

I would like to introduce the beautiful Autumn color leaves in Kyoto Sanzen-in temple  where I visited recently.

Sanzen-in temple is located in the north side of Kyoto named Oohara and Monzeki temple which is a high ranking temple served by
a head priest from the Imperial or noble family.
Oohara is the area where Buddhism music named “Seimei” was originated. Sanzen-was built on the hill from where village of Oohara can be seen.  In the precinct, various temple buildings are standing with surrounded by calm mountain village and green forest.

The path toward the entrance of Sanzen-in temple are covered with autumn color leaves.

Godenmon-gate as the entrance of Sanzen-in temple is surrounded by high stone wall like a castle gate.
The stone framework is used by natural stones and very robust.

Through this Godenmon-gate, you walk to Kyakuden house (Reception hall) which was built by Toyotomi Hideyoshi. From the building, you can see the garden named “Shuhekien”. You can appreciate this garden from the veranda by various angles.
This garden was re-designed by Kanamori Munekazu who was a famous garden designer in Edo period (1602 – 1867).
You can appreciate the garden landscape with tasting Japanese tea and Japanese cake where clear stream flowing creates a sound of the murmuring and moss be found anywhere.

You walk through Shuhekien and corridor and after climbing up the stairs, you can find the building named “Shinden” where Buddhism ceremony is held. The garden seen from the building is named “Yuseien” is a type of Japanese garden with a pond in the center. In the garden, you can appreciate the moss spread under cedar trees and guardian deities of children are existing there.  On the upper backside of the garden, there are three steps of waterfall is arranged by drawing the water from the mountain as valley style.
