Another one of those "usually crowded" spots, but the earlier you go, the better. It will mostly likely be overall a more enjoyable experience than if you choose the later afternoon. And if you don't mind rain, grab an umbrella and go on a drizzly day, that is another experience in itself!

Beautiful place! Must see. Entry is only 400¥. I recommend visiting it in the morning. It's very peaceful.
