The night illumination is so tender. It is not “night illumination” because Rurikoin temple is closed at night. It opens by 17:00 and it gets dark at that time.

 Every year, Rurikoin temple has many visitors on weekends. It would be better to go there on weekdays.

 Before entering Ruriko-in, we buy ticket at ticket booth located near the temple. You might wait for hours to get to the entrance of the temple. Check the article below.
