Japanese landscapes that feel a dignified appearance, and fall foliage appreciation that feels beautiful in your heart
In autumn, the sunlight shining through the trees is beautiful, and the appearance of autumn leaves shining in the Japanese landscape is tasteful. If you take a leisurely stroll through the precincts shrouded in silence, you will feel as if you have traveled back in time to an ancient era. It seems that you will be able to realize the beauty of Japan once again by the way ginkgo leaves flutter and the beauty of scattered maple trees spread on the approach to the shrine.

The unique Kosanji Temple is a must-see for its fall foliage

There are many buildings that are designated as nationally registered tangible cultural properties, and valuable works of art from ancient times are exhibited in the attached museum.
