Kyoto by the Sea

Nariai-ji Temple

Nariai-ji Temple is located on a mountainside overlooking Amanohashidate” which is considered one of the three most scenic spots in Japan. There is an endless line of visitors to the temple, as it is the 28th temple of the Saigoku Kannon Pilgrimage.
Autumn leaves around the five-story pagoda turn a spectacular red in autumn, and the scenery here looks just like a picture scroll. A light-up event will be held on November 10th and 11th.
