Story & Recommendation
Enjoy the beautiful illuminations and projection mapping show during the Special Night Entrance at Kodai-ji Temple
Kodai-ji is a temple that enshrines the daimyo Toyotomi Hideyoshi and his wife Nene, and at the temple they hold special night entrance events where the temple is illuminated at night in spring, summer, and autumn. In spring and autumn you get to see the temple and the cherry blossoms and autumn leaves, respectively, illuminated at night and in summer the fresh greenery is illuminated, making the temple a cool refuge from hot summer days. The refined garden and bamboo grove, the magnificent temple buildings; they are illuminated in an elegantly simple way, which is the reason many people go to see the illumination every year. Koda-ji Temple is also famous for the different 3D projection mapping shows they have every year, where you get to see the combination of historical scenery and the latest technology.
