A mystical temple famous for its mummy and breath-taking autumn colors

Believed to have been established in the year 803, Yokokura-ji (officially called Ryokaisan Yokokura-ji) is an ancient temple that houses 22 official National Important Cultural Heritages. In addition to these historical artifacts, which include statues, paintings, and documents, the temple also preserves a viewable mummy that is spectated to be around 200 years old.

During the fall, the temple is famous for its bright colors and is selected as one of Gifu’s top 33 spots to see autumn leaves. The striking contrast between the aged architecture of the temple and the warm colors of the changing leaves is breathtakingly beautiful.
During the average year, autumn colors are best seen from early to late November.
