とてもキレイな庭園でした。桜の満開にはまだ早かったようです。満開の桜だったらもっとステキな庭園になるんだろうな? 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? #kyoto #jonangu

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。

The site of Jonangu was once the part of a huge imperial palace of retired Emperor Shirakawa, and his mausoleum is located nearby. How strange that this quiet place was once the very center of Japan!

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

Southern Kyoto
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

I visited on 3rd November, when they were having the Kyokusui no Utage ceremony, which was really interesting and beautiful. I think the gardens would be lovely at many times of the year.
