  • Hieizan Mountain Electric Iron Eight Kiyotaka Bishin mouth. Follow the road signs through a bridge, came to the glass light courtyard, the doorway put a brand "special public", 2000 yen tickets, with a small bag, which has copied the Buddhist scriptures pen and paper. The courtyard is very beautiful, especially as the second floor of the façade. But there may be too many tourists, it will make you a little irritable. November 2017 two brushes, in the morning more than 8 is already outside the door began to line up, photo only to 40 seconds.

  • I visited (Monday) to 11/13. Used the eizan train during this season a few years ago, eizan train is departed, overburdened with packed State. Were raised at that time, the train station demachiyanagi station in comfy, wait for the next person, so I take the Ohara bus from kokusaikaikan station and got off at "yase". (The bus was crowded on the bus eizan train was not enough. ) Morning 8:30 yase arrived ago. Presented in the newspaper big went prepared because I had heard in SNS topic in quite crowded, and the early time in full foliage from either, or from early in the morning on weekdays, Mizuho is prior to 10 persons. At around 9 pm (opening time) put in brighter light. Lapis lazuli garden foliage is in moderation at dusk, but still impressive. Leaves reflected on the second floor is a famous rooms. On the first floor was was different in the same garden. MOSS's life force is overwhelming and healed. Watch quietly, I want to be your garden. It was unfortunately was lost was a few years ago, tea. (From the time crowded with leaves?), even Crouching Dragon garden Japan garden is nice. Calm down people less than the blue garden, when I went, could offer. This satisfaction may elements depends on the congestion and latency. Mountainous region so celebrated winter firmly. I think you are depending on the air temperature, but during this season was down, thick socks and feet for Cairo.

  • So on also became a topic of conversation in the SNS is seasonal but cannot see very crowded even on weekdays during the season. Nice you can visit after many hours of time, and limit the number somewhere around an hour to get up there and have no idea. It is not becoming oshikura manju and inarticulate, including location, famous for beautiful as is, especially in the winter dressed people, good mood. The same person or been dominated the location back from getting crimped between press and was impressed with the lack of morals.

  • There is no words that can describe this place. If you are staying in Japan during the cherry blossom season, you must definitely go there if you have the opportunity to. The entry is a bit expensive but it is very difficult to find another place with such beautiful gardens. This house is famous for the reflection of the trees on the table of the main room. Also there's a very traditional restaurant nearby owned by a very old Japanese man. I highly recommend it.
  • Crowded temple but the scenery was well worth it. We visited here in the end of November. Arrived at the ticketing booth at around 11:30AM and was only able to get tickets for 12:50PM entry. We later realized there is a tiny gallery on the way to the temple that is free to access if you purchased the temple entrance ticket, so you can kill time here. We started lining up at 12:30, then walked a little deeper only to find another line, we waited for another 20 mins or so. The famous photo spot on the second floor was packed; people waited for their turn to get a spot at the table. The temple is small, so it wouldn't take long to go around, but do plan for an extra two hours for waiting around if you are going during the peak foliage time of the year.
  • 2000 yen ticket is not cheap, but worth the visit. The local village is actually quite beautiful as well. Be aware you'd need to purchase tickets before you get in.
  • One of the best temples to vIsit in Kyoto during the falling maple season. The temple only opens during two selected periods each year. It will open this year till Dec 10.
  • It is beautiful,but it is a small place,and due to their rule,they only open for like a month to the public,when they open the visitors are tooooooo many. Totally break the peace it should have there. They provide a place you can write litany,but it's so crowded and noisy that you'll giving up.
