Obviously, from the number of Japanese maples around, it is to be view in the Autumn. Cold comfort for me going in May as simply green, green and more green. I'm sure it looks great in season, but otherwise it's pretty ordinary and can be missed.

This temple is a famous tourist attraction for Momiji. However, I would recommend you to go there during green seasons in the months April, May and June. When you go there, you will see hundreds of beautiful trees and you will enveloped by the greenness surrounding you. You will feel refreshed in mind and body. In addition, this temple is so quiet. Anyone looking for a place to heal will find this a treat. Kyoto has a lot of great temples and Komyoji is definitely one of them!

A very nice spot to view the beautiful fall leaves in Kyoto. Take JR to Nagaokakyo Station or Hankyu train to Nagaoka Tenjin Station, then take bus no. 20 or 22 (bus fare was 170yen) and get down at 旭が丘ホーム前. During autumn season, there will be special bus arrangement to the temple directly. Although crowded but this place was very photogenic with the autumn leaves. The most beautiful view you will see is the hundreds of maple trees line the walking trails on the exit. Definitely worth a visit!
