Eikando Temple Kyoto Illumination

The leaves are finally beginning to turn color in Kyoto. Tonight a cold front is predicted to descend upon western Japan, which will speed the annual display of orange, red, and yellow.

One of the best known spots in the city for viewing the beautiful leaves is Eikando Temple.

To highlight the colors, the temple will be illuminated until December 5.

The three thousand Japanese maple trees will be bathed in light every night from 5:30 until 8:30 pm.


Eikando Temple is on the Philosophers Walk in eastern Kyoto.
