Final Fall Colors

Now that it is December Ninna-ji is operating on winter hours, from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM. We close 30 minutes earlier than usual so be sure to give yourself plenty of time to see everything before closing!

Here are a few pictures of the fall foliage with some of the beautiful structures here at the temple! There are still some leaves on the trees, but the peak for foliage has passed.

Some Fall Colors

Five-Storied Pagoda

It has recently become consistently colder here in Kyoto, and it is starting to bring out the fall foliage around the temple. There are still only a few places where the leaves have changed colors, but in the next few weeks we can expect to see more! This tree by the Five-Storied Pagoda has only changed color on a few branches. When the entire tree has changed color it will be very beautiful, but the contrast of the green and red make early fall foliage photographs like this one special.
