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.

Rurikoin temple is so crowded

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.
