Nov.

Separated by upper and lower ghee (the ultimate truth of Buddhism), around 100 earthworm pagodas are located within the precincts. It is believed that the 5-storey pagoda of Daigoji Temple is the oldest in Kyoto, and regarded as a National Treasure. Chokushi-mon (Gate for Imperial envoys), located in the Honbo Sanboin, has been designated as an important cultural asset, and the Omoteshoin is also proud of its status as a national treasure. The vast garden is a special scenic and historical spot of beauty said to have been designed by Hideyoshi Toyotomi. Daigoji Temple is always full of beauty and color, from the cherry blossoms in spring, to the autumnal colors of the maple, mantenboshi, and ginkgo trees in fall.
