It was a very beautiful garden. But the cherry blossoms didn't bloom very much. How wonderful would it be to be a full bloom cherry blossom?
I went to Jonangu shrine early March during the weekdays. Just a couple of tourist and group of local aunties around which is great for me taking my sweet time enjoying the beauty of the garden.
There are 5 garden. I spent the most time...More
I went to see the Kyo-kusui no Utage held on National Culture Day in November. Although I arrived 40 minutes before the start, I got one of the last available seats. The event is a poetry competition where poets dress in traditional costume and compose...More
This is the first year in my many years in Japan that I have truly enjoyed the Plum Blossoms. Typically, it is the cherry blossoms (Sakura) that is the most anticipated spring event - but this year I realized how equally stunning the plum blossoms...More
Best spot for plum blossoms. Definitely worth going to. There are also tombs of three former emperors along the way from Takeda station so it is worth the walk (around 15 minutes or so). Went on a weekday and it was still packed because the...More
I have never been here to see plum trees and Camellia. I honestly don't trust that much, but it was amazing place to see those flower. I would come back every year!!! 3/18/2017に訪問しましたが全てが完璧でした。枝垂れ梅と椿は完璧に満開で私は日本の美しい心を取り戻したかの様になりました。ピンクと白の枝垂れ梅と椿は色々な種類のものがあり落ちた蕾も同じ方向を向いて居てまるで絵画です。
On the 20th January each year, this dance is performed. They had set it up to accommodate tourists, so we didn't feel out of place. The Shrine priest sets a large iron pot to boil water. There was drums, flute and a ritual dance, then,...More
Sick of the crowds everywhere in Kyoto? Head to the south side of the city and visit Jounan-gu shrine. Gorgeous gardens, koi ponds, a tea house and a very active clergy and community contribute to make this shrine a wonderful place to observe Shinto ceremonies...More
My fiancé and I visited Kyoto to view the amazing Sakura blooms .. Now you can see these all over Japan and there are many web sites that are dedicated to when the flowers will bloom and where . And typically Japanese , they are...More
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the
mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
