Renge-ji is a small temple in the north-east of Kyoto city. Despite its minimalist size, it is very well known as a top spot for watching the autumn colours. According to the pamphlet Renge-ji was founded in 1662 by Imaeda Chikayoshi but other sources state that it was originally near the current location of Kyoto Station, and that Imaeda-san only moved it here and "revived" it long after its total destruction during the Onin war (1467~1477).
