Rurikoin Temple is located in Yase area of Kyoto, and it exhibits only twice a year, in spring and autumn.
It is famous for having beautiful Japanese-style gardens, Ruri-no-niwa and Garyo-no-niwa. The view of autumn leaves from Ruri-no-niwa is especially fantastic.
Hundreds of maple trees are planted in the Ruri-no-Niwa. The landscape from the second floor of the Shoin, where the window view is full to the brim with gorgeous leaves courtesy the garden's maple trees. This view is what has made Rurikoin Temple famous in recent years, with the gorgeous greens of fresh leaves or the warm tones of autumn ones reflected off the polished wooden floors and the large tables set on the inner tatami mats.
The best season is mid-November, and Rurikoin will be so crowded by tourists from home and abroad.

Went today and only saw 3 other people there, which meant it was very quiet. The best times are when it is full green (now) and in the autumn. The price to enter is ¥2000. You have to rest your camera on the table itself to get the “reflection” picture. If you are patient even during crowded times there, you can easily see it.

I was there in June 2019 with all of the luscious green leaves. So beautiful and serene.

Yet another beautiful place in Kyoto. Do make your reservation before coming here. I was lucky that I got in without reservation.

It was too full of people, and the famous table that reflects the garden was extremely disappointing! Wouldn't recommend anyone to go, there are so many other nicer temples around Kyoto, and for way less price as well!
