About Tofukuji Temple

Immerse yourself in the tranquility, ancient history and natural beauty of Kyoto’s Tofuku-ji Temple. Considered the main temple of Rinzai Zen Buddhism, Tofuku-ji manifests Zen architecture dating back to the 13th century. The immense Sanmon Gate, built in 1425, is considered a National Treasure. Explore the main hall and meditation hall, as well as what were once the monk’s living quarters. Admire the four gardens encompassing the Hojo, which are steeped in Buddhist symbolism and earthen loveliness. Tofuku-ji is perhaps most famous for its abundant maple trees that turn a brilliant red in the fall season. Visitors flock to the temple in November to view the valley of crimson trees from an above bridge.
