Kosho-ji Temple
Kosho-ji Temple


Known as Kotazaka Slope, the approach to Kosho-ji Temple is famous because the soft sound of the stream that flows alongside is similar to the sound of the Japanese Koto harp. In the fall, the maple trees along the slope turn a beautiful crimson, and the slope is carpeted in red all the way up to the temple.
