Autumn at Daigo Temple

World Heritage Site basking in the autumn sunshine

By Cathy Cawood    - 1 min read

I already did a photo story about Daigo Temple in the snow, but I want to share photos that show how lovely it also is in autumn. Autumn foliage glows pond, echoing the red of Bentendo and the bridge. Yellow afternoon light illuminates the yellow leaves on the trees around the pagoda. During the middle of the week there were few other visitors, so the atmosphere was calm and relaxing.

 I came to Japan in 2003 to teach English. I lived in Shiga prefecture for 1 year, and it still holds a special place in my heart. I lived in Kyoto for 9 years, then moved to Machida, Tokyo in 2014 after meeting my Japanese partner. I love to take photos, and my Japan in Pictures Facebook page has some 40,000 followers. I have been the Regional Partner for Yamanashi Prefecture since 2014.I am enjoying exploring the prefectures around Tokyo (I like to get off the beaten track), and I hope the photos and stories I share will encourage more people to discover this wonderful country.
