Travel Tips

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

Tofukuji temple is located in the south side of Kyoto and the headquarter of Rinzai sect whose 25 temple buildings are the largest in Kyoto.

The origin of this temple was the family temple built in 1236 by regent, Kujo Michie.
Tsutenbashi bridge was built so that people can reach from Hojo to Kaizando without walking down the valley. Therefore, the landscape of autumn color leaves is overwhelming. 
This temple used to be famous for cherry blossoms, however all the trees were cut away and instead, maple trees were planted.
At present, total about 2000 trees with five kinds of maple trees are planted in the precinct.

The gardens seen from Hojo building were created by Shigemori Mirei who was the famous garden designer in Showa period(1926 – 1989). There are four gardens found on the surroundings of this building.
The south garden represents the world of nine mountains and eight seas by replacing giant rocks and pattern of white sand.
