We were overwhelmed by beautiful 10,000 hydrangeas! We also liked all the garden in the forest. I would love to visit there again. 一面の紫陽花に圧倒されました。少し山の方なので、紫陽花と森林を一緒に楽しめたのも良かったです(^^)来年はツツジも見に行きたいと思います!

This beautiful place was such a delight after the fiasco that is the Golden Temple. There were no tour buses or school groups. In fact only about 1% of the visitors were tourists. And oasis of calm and beauty. The hydrangeas are blooming now, but...More

The pagoda is actually half-sized. It would make an...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
