Information on autumn leaves in Kyoto ② Walk the "Tetsugaku no michi (The Philosopher's Path)", to go out for a Special Release of "Wachuan"

During the season of autumn leaves in Kyoto, you can enjoy special exhibitions of temples, shrines and cultural facilities and light up.

Near the "Tetsugaku no michi (The Philosopher's Path)", my favorite "Wachuan" is usually a closed spot.

It is an educational facility on the site of Notre Dame Jogakuin Junior and Senior High School, and it is open to the public only in spring and autumn.

The residence was originally built by Fujii Hikoshiro, a wealthy merchant from Omi City, Shiga Prefecture, in the early Showa period, a blend of Japanese and Western styles.

Mr. Fujii's sumptuous and stylish mansion was later handed over to the School Sisters of Notre Dame.

For example, the chandelier was replaced by a fluorescent lamp.

The history of being used as a humble monastery is also interesting!

"Wachuan" will be on special display from November 22 to December 8.

How about walking the "Tetsugaku no michi (The Philosopher's Path)" and go out for a Special Release of "Wachuan"?
