This lovely little temple is tucked into a corner of a much larger complex. The highlight is the viewing platform, a covered open-sided room that overlooks a stunning garden. Every shade of green...

広い妙心寺のなかで迷っていたら、紅葉見ごろの表示がされていたので、2018年11月28日AMに参拝した。
大きな寺院ではなく、もみじの数は多くはないが、落葉前の紅葉を見ることができた。
紅葉の季節ではあるが、苔のも一見の価値がある。

広ーい、妙心寺の南側の正門を入って色々見て回り、御朱印を頂きながら北側にというか、緩やかな斜面の小径を上っていきます。私は、境内を突き抜けてしまいましたので看板に従って再度下りました。入院?入園料は500円ですが払う価値はあります。しっとりとした庭園を鑑賞できました。

Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
