It is getting cooler and cooler day by day. Leaves of trees are gradually changing their colors and shortly in many areas, most leaves will turn shiny with a variety of beautiful colors like yellow, gold, red and green etc. If you are located near the sightseeing spot where you can enjoy viewing autumn foliage, you must be really happy with the fact that you are one of limited beneficiaries of beautiful fall season.
Among uncountable number of sightseeing spots where people can really enjoy quite colorful autumn leaves is Kyoto where they can enjoy visiting various temples that were built more than 600 to 1,000 years ago. Number of foreign tourists visiting Kyoto is now remarkably increasing. Especially people who are interested in typical Japanese traditional culture relating to Buddhism are encouraged to visit this city where they can enjoy another world they have never experienced outside of Japan. And many temples in Kyoto are surrounded by shiny autumn leaves. During the fall season, such areas are full of visitors not only from Japan but also from various foreign countries.
In Kyoto, there are 17 properties which are registered as World Heritage Site. Such properties are temples, shrines and a castle. That is why the city of Kyoto is visited by so many tourists from all over the world.
