November is the peak of the autumn leaves in Kyoto.

However, autumn Kyoto is crowded with tourists very much.
The autumn leaves of Kyoto are very beautiful, but we get tired because of the crowd…

Is there the little-known place of colored leaves around Kyoto?

Yes, I’ve got some good news for you.

The name of the place is Hakuryu-en garden.

This garden is opened to the public only at the time of autumn colored leaves, and only 100 people a day can enter it!!

Which means…

Very not crowded!!

Therefore, I went to “Hakuryu-en Garden” the other day.

That was an even more wonderful place than I had imagined!!

The impression of this garden is…

Because there are very few tourists, I could enjoy colored leaves slowly.
Here is really the little-known spot of colored leaves of Kyoto.

This is an open space of the entrances.
hakuryuen-05

This is the entrance of the garden.
The scenery that moss and colored leaves are wonderful!!
hakuryuen-01

The reason why only 100 people a day can enter this garden is…
to protect the moss of the garden.
hakuryuen-06

If there are many tourists, the moss won’t quite grow.
hakuryuen-07

Therefore this garden limits the entrance of the tourist.
