Hello everyone !
This is Tada from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.
I've been to the Heirinji Temple for enjoy the autumn colors !
I had a wonderful walk around the grounds of the Heirinji Temple.
And just sit and think for a while.
There are some interesting buildings here and also some nice planting.
A little oasis in Tokyo metropolitan area.
The grounds are most famous for their maple trees as well as cherry blossoms.
The maples must be wonderful in autumn, but I was a little early to see that.
As this is not a museum piece, it's a real working temple as much alive today as when it was built.
This is a much better place to get a feel for zen temples and temple life,
than you will find in the tourist centers.
Definitely worth a visit.
