Kaisando Hall at Tofuku-ji Temple Kyoto

Tofukuji Temple is a big temple which draws a TON of people especially at this time of year. I went here right after Fushimi Inari Shrine and the crowds had grown. The colors are wonderful though! Kaisando Hall or the Founders Hall is part of the complex. I been here before and here was the original post from a year ago. I just had to go back and visit more of the buildings and the foliage. 
Here is the Tsutenkyo Bridge that passes over a small valley with a river below. It is a popular place for autumn color viewings.

The maples were lovely!

The gardens of the Kaisando Hall are contrasting in which on side of the stone pat you have a dry garden made up of mostly sand and then you have this side that is lush in green.

Even though it is early/mid fall the green is still so strong here...
