Rainy day – Visiting Seiryoji in Arashiyama

Everyone knows Togetsu bridge in Arashiyama, but not everyone walks far North along the street as the main attractions are just right after the bridge. But if you take a 1.2km walk you’ll get to Seiryoji temple. I have never entered the building and visited its garden (until recently I didn’t even know that it exists) but in the autumn it is one place to go and see some good autumn colors for free.

I was in Arashiyama today and decided to see how the autumn leaves are in Seiryoji. Well, this autumn seems to be not the best one – it has been warm recently which didn’t allow the maple leaves to turn red or yellow quickly and keep fresh. Instead they have dried and crooked and have turned brown.

Well, it is not that bad though. The autumn can be felt 🙂
