#9 Korinin temple 興臨院

The schedule of 2021

Canceled in 2021.

Overview

Korinin is a sub-temple of Daitokuji temple. It is not open to public usually. Fortunately, it is open to us in fall.It is cozy, quiet, and the most underrated place to admire autumn leaves in Kyoto. I cannot tell you whether night illumination is held or not because the temple doesn’t officially made announcement yet.
