Travel Tips

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

Enkoji temple is located in the north side of Kyoto named Ichijyodani and Rinzai school of Zen Buddhism related with Ieyasu Tokugawa who was the Shogunate of Edo period.
Ieyasu established the school for any kinds of people who wanted to learn culture, paintings and so-on and the school was transferred to current area in 1667. The open mind school policy had led the expansion of Japanese culture.

You can appreciate beautiful autumn color leaves on the path to the gate.

After entering the gate, you can find the dry landscape garden named “Honryutei”.
This garden was built in 2013 and consist of white sands which represent cloud sea with whirling current or flow and rock arrangement which represent dragon climbing up to heaven.

After walking through a center gate, you can see the garden named “Jyugyuno-niwa” which consists of beautiful moss, autumn color leaves and fallen leaves. The garden was created in Edo period as a type of Japanese garden with a pond in the center by borrowing mountains as background.
