Eikando is a Jodo-shu Buddhist temple famous for autumn foliage, especially red maples. One of Kyoto's most photogenic spots for fall leaves.
ei401-20161125_9000.jpg
ei402-20161125_8993.jpg
When you first enter Eikando temple in Kyoto, this is what you see. A hint of more to come.

Everywhere you look in Eikando is so utterly photogenic, or should I say paint-genic since they didn’t have cameras when the temple was built. Everywhere looks like a scene from a classic Japanese painting.
ei409-20161125_9025.jpg
ei410-20161125_9034.jpg
