Heiankyo (平安郷) is the sacred place for new religion named Sekai Kyusei Kyo IZUNOME, located in Ukyo Ward, Kyoto City.

It is not ordinarily open to the public but is allowed to visit on the specified day in April, May, and November.

Here in April, beautiful cherry blossoms bloom, in May, pretty fuji (Japanese wisteria) and iris bloom, and in November, we can see beautiful autumn leaves.

It is the little-known but good spot of cherry blossoms and autumn-leaf viewing.


About Heiankyo

It is only open to the public for a limited period in spring and fall every year.

So, I went there in the autumn of 2018 (November 24, 2018).

I walked from Randen Kitano-Line Tokiwa Station which is the nearest station of Heiankyo.


It was about 30 minutes (1.8 km) on foot from the station.

It was open at 10:00. Admission was free.



I could enjoy tea ceremony in the garden. (free of charge.)


This place is very large.


Autumn leaves were very beautiful.


Corridor of autumn leaves in Heiankyo, it’s so beautiful, too.


There were not too many tourists here.


It was exactly a little-known but good place of autumn leaves in Kyoto.


In addition, there is Mokichi Okada Memorial Museum (no charge for admission) near Heiankyo.


Autumn leaves of this art museum are also very beautiful.

Special admission day

Heiankyo is only open to the public on specific days in spring and autumn.
