I visited the Mimurotoji and its gardens under the suggestion of a Japanese friend. The view that met us shortly after the entrance was nothing short of spectacular! Tucked away from the usual tourist traffic in Central Kyoto, Uji not only boasts of its quaint...More

Came here for a business lunch. The restaurant was almost full but had a couple of tables available. Firstly the views of the lake out of two sides of glass is stunning. A cold winters day did not seem so bad from looking outside with...More
Mimurotoji is a temple founded about 1200 years ago in the northern hills of Uji City. It is also known as the "flower temple. Very nice place and not so far from Uji rail station. Entree fee is 500 JPY.
Mimurodo Temple is famous for its flowers: in May azalea, and in June hydrangea. As we visited there, azaleas were in full bloom, and the premises were turned into a carpet of flowers. If you visit this temple, you can combine it with other spots...More
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
One of several interesting religious complexes sitting quietly in the shadow of the Phoenix, Mimurotoji contains hillside gardens, a three-tier pagoda, an amidadō, a large hondō, all prefectural level cultural heritage sites dating to the Edo-jidai.

Visited July 3 and it was a little bit past full bloom so some of the hydrangea flowers had already fallen, but there were still some beautiful spots. The bright red ones were especially pretty, they must bloom a little later. Supposedly the garden has...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.
