Kyoto is one of the best place of Autumn leaf spot. Feeling so much calm and relax to stay in the Japanes temples.
I went to various places in Kyoto to enjoy the famous maples, famous and niche, but there is only one of the first resorts in Kyoto, Dongfu Temple.
Tungfu Temple is the largest Zen temple in Kyoto, named after Nara Todai-ji Temple and Kofuku-ji Temple. This place is one of the most popular spots for viewing autumn leaves in Kyoto. Every autumn, visitors are constantly coming.
Tungfu Temple is a popular spot in the red leaf season, very close to Fushimi Inari Temple, so there are many tourists. From the tram, you can see the crowds of people. The ladies and sisters wearing kimonos are happy to buy specialties and snacks. Although I have gone to many monasteries in the past few days, only Dongfu Temple has made me feel like a crowd.
When you get out of the subway, you have to go a long way. The most famous ones on this road are these lovely little Buddhas.
Stepping into Dongfu Temple first has to pass a wooden bridge. This angle is the very famous red leaf scenery of Dongfu Temple. However, when I arrived, I have already withered. After a few days of actual shooting, I summed up a rule: the red leaves are red from the canopy, and the leaves are the first to fall. When the red is red, it is still green. When it is red, it has already fallen. For my late-night players, the scenery from the top down is basically not good, they are all scorpions, but they are still good from the bottom up.
Tongfu Temple's famous Tongtianqiao and Abbot's Courtyard are all charged separately. Once inside, it is full of grand red leaves, and there is a feeling of covering the sky, which also reflects the conclusion that the red leaves are still perfect from below. Haha.
This area is blocked by a fence, so it is very crowded, and it is impossible to shoot portraits. You can only look up and watch the light and shadow of the red leaves.
Get off at "Tokyoji Station" on "JR Nara Line" or "Keihan Main Line" and walk for 10 minutes
Tofuku-ji Temple is one of the five major temples in Kyoto, Japan. There are different styles of abbot gardens in the four north and south of the temple, among which the northern court is the most famous. The washable jade bridge in the temple is the best place to see the red leaves in Kyoto every autumn.
Dongfu Temple is open from 9am to 4pm, free of charge. Tickets and slippers are required for certain areas. Non-red leaves season, there are very few people, very quiet, is a rare place to cultivate and cultivate.
Tofuku-ji Temple is the largest Zen temple in Kyoto. It is one of the most popular spots for viewing autumn leaves in Kyoto. Every autumn, visitors are in constant stream. At the same time, Dongfu Temple is also famous for its beautiful gardens. In the spring, the green leaves and moss that stretched out in layers will set off the ancient temple. The first is to go to the Woyun Bridge. There is no need for tickets here. You can see the bridge. As soon as I walked over, I was so dumbfounded. Is this too exaggerated? ! The whole piece of red ocean, the United States will not speak, and after entering the Woyun Bridge, you will need to buy tickets after entering Dongfu Temple. It should be the best day to choose the best maple leaf, all red is very bright. Going to the Tongtian Bridge and seeing the Woyun Bridge just now, there is no hesitation. This is the most beautiful place for my trip to enjoy the maple! Unbelievable beauty! Paintings are not dare to use color so bold!
