Komyo-ji temple

Famous as a temple for viewing autumn leaves, both sides of the stone stairway are colored a brilliant red during late autumn. Komyo-ji was founded in 1175, and is one of the eight head temples of JHODO sect, the major Buddhist denominations, and located in Sakyo Ward, Kyoto. Occasionally, aristocrats and ordinary people got together with the imagination that the Pure Land lies far beyond the sinking sun to pray that they might reborn in the Pure Land
