Kyoto’s Koyo 2023

京都の紅葉(Kyoto’s koyo)

The autumn leaves in Kyoto are a little different from those in other areas. Not only are there many shrines and temples, but the townscape and gardens are filled with short, elegant maple leaves, giving it a charming atmosphere. In addition, the people of Kyoto value the seasons, and often express the four seasons with hanging scrolls in alcoves at tea ceremonies and in their homes. We also want to protect, inherit, and pass on this kind of Japanese culture.

The photo is of Toji. This year’s video features the magical and soothing autumn leaves of Ninna-ji Temple, To-ji Temple, and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. The illumination will be held again this year. Taking a leisurely stroll alone or for two is a fun way for adults to relax. If you can’t make it to Kyoto, please enjoy the videos on Japan-search.jp.
