The huge Dodan-Tsutsuji tree at the Ankokuji Temple in Tanto is said to be more than 100 years old and in the autumn its leaves turn a brilliant red. The view of the colored tree from the main temple is like viewing a living painting. Visitors can take turns posing in front of the tree and taking pictures.
It is truly a one-of-a-kind sight that you do not want to miss! It is best to arrive before the sun starts to set. The temple is open from 8:00-19:00 and is 300 yen per person for entry. Ankokuji Temple can be best reached by car, which you can rent here.
