Cycling to autumn leaves peeping spots in Kyoto!
This temple and its Tsuten-kyo Bridge are something everyone wants to see during the autumn leaves season. Unfortunately, the bridge is so popular that there during the autumn leaves season, taking pictures on it is not allowed, but you still get to enjoy the beautiful scenery from it. If however, you want something a bit quieter, look below:
This temple is famous for its lotus room, “Renge no Ma,” which has four square windows in its folding doors, which let you see four distinct parts of the garden. This is a great spot to view the garden any time of the year, but the view in autumn is especially nice.
The temple is some way up a hill, so if you’re not in good shape, you might have to push your bicycle up the hill, but it should be worth it to see the autumn leaves of Sennyu-ji. And as it’s not quite as easily accessible as Tofuku-ji Temple, it shouldn’t be quite as crowded.
