Rurikoin Temple only allows worship during the special worship period in spring (April to June), and autumn (October to December). The "ruri garden," or lapis lazuli garden, with its splendid autumn leaves, provides a breathtaking scenery. The "momiji floor," or autumn leaves floor is a must-see: the autumn leaves reflected on an immaculately-polished floor has become so popular that recently, visitors need to wait 4 hours in line to catch a glimpse of it.
