Kyoto's Eikando temple in autumn illumination

posted on November 13, 2015

In Japan's ancient capital of Kyoto, visitors are flocking to the deepening autumn colors and evening illuminations at a time-honored temple.

Eikando Temple in Kyoto is well known for its autumnal foliage and is featured in a 10th century poetry collection. The temple is more than 1,000 years old.

In the evening, when the temple opens to visitors, 3,000 or so maples in the precincts are lit up with 600 lights.

Some trees have already turned bright red, while others have just begun to take on the autumn colors. The illumination will run through December 3rd.
