Hase Temple Fall Light-up 11/19 – 12/4

(Official dates awaiting confirmation)

Every year, in celebration of the beautiful autumn foliage, Hase Temple opens its doors for a spectacular evening light-up of its beautiful gardens. Stunning crimsons and golds reflect in the ponds which greet pilgrims near the entrance, and climbing the stairs to the upper temple, visitors are immersed in a kaleidoscope of color. Blanketed by night, the line between this world and the next blurs,  as a mysterious serenity envelops the temple grounds.

Definitely one of the highlights of Kamakura’s autumn season; this event should not be missed!
