On the grounds of Ankoku-ji Temple are more than 100 Japanese maples over 80 years in age, and when the festival is held in mid-November, the blazing autumn foliage presents a stunning contrast with the mountains behind.
Traditional Japanese music is played, and there are open-air tea ceremonies, dance performances, booths selling local specialty products and more.
