kyoto tōfuku-ji temple

Visiting this temple is not on the must visit list. Yet at the time of autumn leaves it is one of the main temples to visit. There are in my opinion two points of interest: the park inside the compound facing the various covered bridges and walkways the view is beautiful and the traditional garden in one of the courtyards. The period when the leaves change from green to gold and then to purple is quite short: about ten days. And the phenomenon does not occur everywhere simultaneously. This time I was a little bit too late, but the visit was still worth it.
