[Fall Leaves Information] Kongourinji Temple

The three mountains of Koto have been selected among the 100 Japanese Famous Spots for Crimson Leaves. One of them, Kongourinji Temple, features 1000 maple trees painting the entire area red, so brilliant as to be called the "blood-red crimson leaves," thrilling all who see them!

The main temple is a designated National Treasure, a representative of Japanese style construction from the Kamakura period (1192 to 1333), and is home to 11 Important Cultural Properties in the form of Buddhist statues, including a Sho Kannon that is not normally on public display, an Amitabha, and an Eleven-faced Kannon.

The three storey pagoda and Nitenmon gate are also designated Important Cultural Buildings.

The crimson leaves in the nationally designated place of Scenic Beauty garden are also wonderful, and simply have to be seen reflected in the water!

There are also some charming Sentai Jizo statues to be found along the pathway!

A convenient shuttle bus operates during the period of the fall leaves, so it's more than worth making the trip!
