Kiyomizu-dera Autumn Illuminations

6:00pm – 9:30pm

To celebrate the changing of seasons, Kiyomizu-dera opens up in the evening three times a year (autumn, spring, and summer) and holds an illumination event to brighten up the foliage. The pagoda, temple, and Jojuin Garden will be lit up.

Illuminations will turn on from 6 p.m. — no reservations or special ticket is required, just pay the normal admission fee. The temple will be open till 9:30 p.m. but last entrance will be at 9 p.m.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
