The Daigoji Temple was built in 874 by Master Shobo, the Grand Disciple of Kukai, at the top of the mountain Daigosan surrounded by luxuriant nature. With more than 100.000 registered important cultural assets, the temple is also registered as a UNESCO world heritage site.
During the fall night viewing, its central area, called Garan, is being lit up to spotlight its marvellous automnal colors as well as its beautiful architecture with the Benten Hall, the National Treasure Five-storied Pagoda and the Main Hall. The scenery of its vermilion-lacquered hall reflected in the pond around a multitude of red maple leaves is absolutely stunning. Come discover the unique and exceptionnal atmosphere of the Daigoji’s autumn evenings.
