Story & Recommendation
Special Night Viewing at Chion-in Temple takes place twice a year, in spring and autumn
Chion-in is a Pure Land Buddhism temple in Kyoto’s Higashiyama area, and every year, in spring and autumn, they hold a special night viewing event. In spring the special night viewing is held at the same time as the famous Higashiyama Hanatoro event, where the whole area of Higashiyama is lit up by lanterns, and the one in autumn in November when the autumn leaves are at their best. During this event the garden well known as one of the most beautiful of the Showa period, Yuzenen Garden, and the huge Sanmon Gate are illuminated by LED lights, enveloping the temple with a mysterious aura. Also, during this event you also have a chance to hear about the temple and Buddhism from the priests of the temple. The atmosphere at the temple is very different between night and day, so remember to add this temple to your Kyoto itinerary! ▼Click here for Writer's Blog https://sharing-kyoto.com/Blog/b_chionin
