Enrian Temple (厭離庵)

Enrian Temple is located in Arashiyama area in western Kyoto. The temple is usually closed for public through the year but exclusively opens during the autumn leave season. (from 1st November to 7th December)

While Kyoto has many temples and autumn leaves viewing spots, this small temple, Enrian temple is one of top sites which attracts numbers of visitors including professional photographers. Why? The place is known for “the reddest leaves”.

The maple trees “momiji” in the temple flash their deep red leaves and transform the temple to the warmest utopia.

It’s much less crowded comparing to other major temples in Kyoto. So if you are planning a trip to Kyoto, this place is highly recommended.

The best time to see the red hot autumn leaves is mid to end of November, but if you wish to see the carpet of the fallen leaves, visiting there in early December is more ideal.
