You can usually visit the Konkaikomyo Temple for free, but you will need to pay the admission fee at the time of autumn leaves. The beautiful colored leaves and the Japanese-style garden are lovely, and the view of the city of Kyoto from the place of the three towers where it climbed the mountain is a masterpiece. There are no photos, but Buddha statues in the main hall are also powerfully beautiful.
