It’s the prime season for enjoying beautiful foliage here in Japan. All across the country, leaves are turning into all shades of red and orange, and it makes scenes of nature all the more stunning.

In Kyoto, one photographer has done an excellent job of capturing the beauty of the season. Pomponyama (@mt_pompon_ppy) is a photographer who captures images of nature at its finest. Their Instagram and Twitter account is full of gorgeous photos of forests, mountains, and wildlife.

For one of their most recent uploads, they took to Kyoto's Yanagidani Kannon (also known as Yokokuji Temple) and showed the full spectrum of autumn's colors intertwined with the peaceful vibes of the temple. The temple is located in Nagaokakyo City, Kyoto, and it boasts of spectacular views all year round.

In summer, over 5,000 hydrangeas fully bloom in their hydrangea path. And in the colder months, the temple’s second floor has a study room formerly used by Meiji era elites, which also has a garden that's perfect for appreciating autumn leaves.

You can enjoy similar autumn sceneries in Kyoto until late November, or you can vicariously enjoy them through the photos on Pomponyama's Twitter and Instagram accounts.
