Stunning autumn colors! Fine to take a stroller. It’s an easy 60min loop walk if you go around the whole forest, no steep bits.
Hirinji is Zen temple in Saitama Niiza-city. It is about an hour from Tokyo station, but few foreigners come to sightseeing at this temple. That is a little-known but good place. Fall is the most beautiful. The Emperor came to see the beautiful autumn leaves.
