The best season must be at around the middle to end of November for the full Autumn colors like the images below, but October also would be nice in the comfortable Autumn breeze. Enjoy the solemn, but romantic light world...

Shoren-in temple is one of the five Monzeki temples, meaning the head priests originally belonged to the imperial family. So the look of the temple is solemn and peaceful like Imperial Palace...


This temple is very famous for its breathtaking night light up show of the garden. Shorenin temple is dedicated to the Shijoko Nyorai (Buddha).

The Shijoko Nyorai signifies Light itself, and Fudomyo-o, one of his embodiments, is followed by fire. Thus, particularly light is regarded as being divine. So these show is intended to recreate the graceful and elegant image of the temple itself which at times served as a seat of emperor.

Right after you step in, its mysterious world will spread in front of you! Welcome its pure and sacred land... Especially, you would be amazed the circular pond is to be magnificently lit up!!
