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.

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

Beautiful Japanese garden, but too expensive and super-crowded. (2000 yen for entrance fee)

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

Like many other reviews, there were many people inside the temple. Even when I queued at 8:30 AM, 1 hour before opening time, 20-30 people wer already there before me. The entrance fee of 2000 yen was quite expensive, but there was no time limit, so you can loiter around the lacquer table, waiting for a chance to get your photos.
Inside the temple was very beautiful, though during my time, the trees hadn't fully changed color. You need to take off your shoes, and carry them in a plastic bag from the entrance. You can also sit and copy sutra (Buddhist scriptures), with the provided paper when buying the ticket.
If I have time, would go back again, then go further north of Kyoto, to Kuruma
