Autumn leaves: Kencho-ji

Beyond the Karamon (Chinese-style gate), autumnal colors are brightly blazing in the lucid sunlight peculiar to this crisp season.

The gilded ornaments of peony flowers and auspicious omens are softly glittering on the black lacquered gate and, together with the vivid autumn leaves, are producing a seasonal picturesque view just like a gold-sprinkled lacquer ware for an autumn tea ceremony.

 Best wishes for the new year!
