Seto-City Jokoji Temple's Autumn Leaves
|Date :||Early to late November|
Founded in 1336, Jokoji Temple is an ancient temple of the Myoshin-ji branch of Rinzai Zen and a famous place for autumn leaves. Within the temple grounds are two cultural properties: Muiden (the main temple building) and the place where the ancestor of famous warlord Tokugawa Ieyasu and founder of the Owari Domain, Tokugawa Yoshinao (Genkei), is enshrined. The magnificent contrast between the deep crimson leaves and the historical buildings is also a must-see.
Located in the neighborhood of Jokoji Park, you can combine their visit with an autumn walk.
