  • Temple of flowers and said I thought it was crowded, I'm heh. But I came to see the garden here. Here gardens incorporating Buddhist thought and is famous as a paradise garden that reproduces scenes of paradise. And falls blue woman's Garden in are welcomed and oldest man-made waterfall in Japan. As the remnants of the garden of the Heian period was rare in the country's scenic gardens.

  • In Jodo-garden view... Lotus grows too much, much as they were. Lol. Long pond is not cocked, and high like the invisible Temple from the other side, too. Reverse the Buddha has cool stuff, was a little touched in the opposite sense. Location is perfect from Hanazono Station within walking distance close to the Myoshin-ji Temple too!

  • Cream color and bright pink Lotus Flower was at their best. Statue of Amida Nyorai is exemplary. This is a place you want to visit also the season of cherry blossoms and autumn leaves.

  • Small place
  • Had visited the Temple of flowers of a winter seeing flowers are most regrettable, but beautiful Buddha who can worship, was happy enough. I liked the statue in a beautiful and zushi remains inside the most brightly colored paintings. It is a masterpiece filled with grace and intelligence and compassion. Of course great bodhisattva Amitabha Buddha and annex. But very unfortunately couldn't do obeisance to the goryo Shi mamasal gate Academy should be located behind the Temple of it. This temple in his later years spent then wanted to visit by all means at the tomb of this woman died and was buried in the flip side of this mountain. It will probably hear in the imperial household agency management areas. But as old fans wanted us greetings.

  • Ritsu sect temple as a temple of flowers famous originally this temple is located at the eastern foot of the 双ヶ丘, which was the famous old ground still frequented by tourists ninna-ji Temple, Myoshinji temple near almost precisely the grounds neat pure land garden during summer time visiting and Lotus can appreciate seasonal flowers around the ponds Rubia of Lotus Leaf trees early in the lotus flowers and beautiful petals of pale pink and green landscapes Garden Center is a good idea, but are like personally most is the hydrangea Temple of the recommended flowers worth a visit is 10 minutes, is worth a visit, said Japan want Taki blue girl located in one corner of the garden hydrangeas around around the garden pond that borders the various kinds of hydrangeas also do not forget to see the oldest artificial waterfalls and admission fee is 500 yen
