But fall is not the only time to view the leaves.

Although Enkouji Temple is visited by many people from all over Japan when the fall foliage is at its peak, its moving scenery can also be enjoyed in other seasons. For example, in spring, the weeping cherry trees are in full bloom. In summer, the moss and trees shine, fresh and glorious. Try something different from the usual autumnal scenes, and you may discover something new to appreciate.
