2015 Fall Photo Tour of Japan | Kanazawa to Natadera

Jan 26 | Evan | No Comments |


Having already spent a lot of time in Kenrokuen and making a day trip to Shirakawago, it was time to check out some other sites around Kanazawa and we made one more day trip to Natadera which is still in Ishikawa Prefecture but in Komatsu and Kaga Onsen area, not Kanazawa.  As you can see below, the fall leaves were stunning here and I guess it makes sense as Natadera is quite famous in the area for autumn foliage!

Natadera is quite large and is about the size of some of the larger, well known temples in Kyoto.  It’s easy to spend a lot of time walking the paths at Natadera and find interesting photo opportunities.  It’s well known for fall leaves, but Natadera also has a variety of gardens, ponds, moss covered paths and gardens, a small museum and this below which body in our group had the courage to walk up to (what you can’t see from my photo is the steep drop below if you slip off the narrow path but can kind of get an idea from the second photo)!
