Yase's [Rurikoin] where you can wash your mind in a garden full of charm

A branch of Jodo Shinshu Muryojuzan Komyo-ji Temple, which has its main temple in Gifu. It is normally closed to the public, but is open to the public in spring and autumn.
In autumn, the contrast between the autumn leaves and the moss is very beautiful. You can encounter various expressions of autumn leaves, such as the "Sanroji Garden" that continues from the gate, the "Ruri no Niwa" in the main garden that can be seen from the study, and the "Garyu no Niwa" with its dynamic water flow and stonework. In particular, the autumn leaves reflected on the floor of the study room are so beautiful that you will be lost for words.
