Hi there ! It's Madi from Kyoto Hana Hostel :)
In Kyoto, the leaves are turning yellow or red day by day and some of them reached its peak.
So as I got 2 days off in a row, I went to some places for leaf peeping !
This is Eikando which is one the most famous spot for Japanese maples :)
There are many different colors everywhere, different kind of Japanese maple trees everywhere so I cant' get enough of seeing ! Especially sunset time, the scenery is stunning !
This is Enkouji temple in Ichijoji area ; north-west in Kyoto city. I assumed that the peak was slightly over but the garden view was just brilliant !
Also the contrast between Japanese maples and bamboos are very beautiful.
Better go there early morning, before 9 am is good if you would like to take nice pictures !
It was pity cause it was raining... if the weather was good, the scenery must be good !
