Story & Recommendation
Eikan-do offers a great view of autumn leaves to those willing to look over their shoulder
Most people know this temple only as Eikan-do, but the official name of the temple once known as a center for learning is Shojuraigosan Muryoju-in Zenrin-ji, quite a mouthful. Eikan-do Temple is famous for its maple trees, and especially the autumn leaves. It is said there are 3000 maple trees growing on the temple premises, and in autumn they all change their color to red, orange, magenta, brown, and yellow. The best time to see these autumn leaves is to come in mid-November.
