Faint Lights Floating On A Japanese Garden! Blue Flickering Illumination

Shoren-in temple holds special night visits every spring and autumn. During the term, everywhere in the garden is illuminated. Beside Shinden, you can see the garden covered with flickering lights like fireflies.

Prestigious Temple With Beautiful Fusuma Drew By A Modern Artist

Shoren-in Monzeki is famous for the fantastic illumination in spring and autumn. At such prestigious temple, a reception room 'Kacho-den' has beautiful fusuma (papered sliding door) with lotus flower drawings by a artist Hideki Kimura. Miraculous fusion of historical temple and modern art is wonderful!

Except for the crowded season like fall foliage, you can see fusuma and the temple leisurely. Admission fee: 500 yen, illumination time 800yen
