  • In the vicinity of Tianlong Temple, this is also one of the famous temples of maple. Although maple leaves, there are still a few red leaves on the tree. To avoid the heat of the time, the camera will not be afraid to shoot people. The wet and cold place has a depression the beauty of winter.

  • At the station and the temple to see the Treasure House, so I went to the treasure house, a lot of photographer in the film, here's maple, the courtyard is not big, if you come to 岚忻 Mountain, you can go, about a half hour to stay enough. The whole baby house is maple.

  • It’s right next to Tenryu-ji. Compared to the grand yet crowded UNESCO temple, Hogon-in is smaller in size, much quieter and more delicate, with temples, stream, bridges and maple trees laid out perfectly. BTW early December may be the best time for viewing the maple leaves here.
  • The light show of the red leaves are great. Not as much people as other hot spots in Kyoto. A place worth visit after the day time visit at the Arashiyama.
  • Hogon-in, a Buddhist sub-temple of Tenryuji in Arashiyama, western Kyoto. Opens for special occasions and is best for viewing fall colors. Has a magnificent Japanese stroll garden. Looking down the view was as good as looking up. 🍁#宝厳院 #momiji #嵐山 #紅葉 #iPhone5

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
