[Kurodani Konkai Komyoji Temple] Garden with beautiful autumn leaves, special viewing in autumn 2022


At “Kurodani Konkai Komyoji Temple”, where the Kyoto Shugoshoku set up their headquarters at the end of the Edo period, special viewings will be held during the day and at night.

Highlights of day visits

The O-hojo, which is usually closed to the public, and the circuit-style garden “Shiun no Niwa” colored with autumn leaves are open to the public.
In addition, this year, we will exhibit items related to the Aizu Domain, including the Shibetsu Hakodate-zu folding screen from Shibetsu Town, as the “Kyoto Shugoshoku 160th Anniversary Special Exhibition” at the O-hojo.
You can also see the “Tiger Room” where the number of tigers changes when you open and close the fusuma.

During the daytime visit, the temple gate is also open to the public.
On a clear day, the view from the top of the tower, which can see as far as Abeno Harukas in Osaka, is spectacular.

Furthermore, from this year, a guided walking tour of the Bakumatsu, Aizu Domain, and Shinsengumi will be held.
While enjoying the beautiful autumn leaves, you can learn more about Konkai Komyoji Temple, which is associated with the Aizu domain and the Shinsengumi at the end of the Edo period.
