Daigoji Temple醍醐寺

Event

A Buddhist temple located in Fushimi Ward in Kyoto City and the head temple of the Daigo School of Shingon Sect Buddhism. In autumn, the leaves on the temple's maples, ginkgoes, and konara oaks turn crimson and gold, flamboyantly decorating its 6.62 million square meter grounds. The temple's trees are also lit up at night. The sight of the fall foliage gorgeously illuminated amidst the temple's solemn atmosphere is truly stunning.

          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.
