Sadly the ticket was sold out when I arrived at around 2 p.m on Sunday. Nonetheless the outside is beautifully coated in red & yellow color of the fall. I'm sure inside the temple is even more breath-taking

It's a very beautiful temple. It's worth the time on lining up and waiting outside.

The most important thing to do here as a tourist seems to be taking one scene only. If the queue is very long and the red leaves are not in good condition, you should consider to save your time and visit other places. The entrance fee is 2000 yen, which is very high.

Low key beautiful Temple that is a bit of a journey from the city and also a bit pricey at 2000 yen per person but it was well worth it, no regrets

Ridiculous amount of people queueing at entrance for a ticket to get on site to get a pic from a table in the room. Not a very pleasant experience but would have done it again if I have never been. The place is pretty just way too many people
