We visited it in the morning on Sunday, 2 Dec 2012. Took more than 500 shots of the gardens. It is one of the best autumn leaves viewing locations in Kyoto. The maple trees with their red or orange leaves were incredible. Spent about 2 hours absorbing the atmosphere and taking photos in the gardens.
It is a must see and we will return again in Spring for the 'Sakura' viewing. The 'Philosopher's Path' is between Eikan-do and the Silver Pavilion, another must experience/see.
