Tsuten Bridge of Tofukuji Temple

The view from Tsuten Bridge during the fall foliage season is so pleasing that it is called "autumn foliage that spreads out like a sea of clouds".

The head temple of the Tofukuji School of Rinzai sect [Tofukuji]

The head temple of the Rinzai sect Tofukuji sect, which boasts a magnificent temple. From the Tsutenkyo Bridge in the precincts, which is also known as a famous place for autumn leaves, you can see the fresh green of green maple from May to June, and the beautiful autumn leaves from mid-November to late November. Approximately 2,000 Japanese maple trees and trident maple trees make the gorge a breathtakingly beautiful sight, filled with green in the summer and red and yellow in the fall. Enjoy every step while listening to the babbling of the stream.
