Kotosanzan Saimyoji Temple湖東三山 西明寺

Event

Kotosanzan Saimyoji Temple is famous for Ruriden, its main hall that was built in the early Kamakura period, as well as its three-storied pagoda built in the late Kamakura period. Both are National Treasures. The autumn leaves at this temple are beautiful and its fudanzakura cherry trees are a natural monument. They come into bloom at the same time as the fall colors, mingling their pretty white flowers with the red leaves of the Japanese maples.

          Visitors to Shiga prefecture are almost always hopping east across the prefectural border from Kyoto, and they are almost certainly Lake Biwa-bound. Covering an area of 670 square kilometers, Lake Biwa makes up the bulk of Shiga prefecture, with beautiful lakeside paths that offer myriad walking and cycling opportunities, connecting a string of museums, shrines, and picturesque views that finally lead you to Hikone Castle on the eastern side of the lake.
