 The Season of Fall Colors is the Best Time to Visit

When all is said and done, the best season to visit Minoh is fall, when it is decked out in the beautiful colors of fall. To add to the experience, Katsuo-ji Temple performs a special nighttime light show after sunset on the weekends and national holidays that causes the faintly dazzling leaves to give birth to a truly fantastical world.
