  • Pure land garden made famous here is rather good. From JR Hanazono Station is close. Located behind the fifth place tumulus, jizo-hospital, Garden North Carolina, good atmosphere. In the area there also places to eat. It was located in the Italy cuisine, Japanese cuisine, sushi, lunch. Paradise garden is recreated the scene of Paradise (never saw everyone merely does not understand that), incorporating Buddhist thought and said. And falls in Japan's oldest "blue girls falls", and has been handed down. Has been designated place of scenic beauty here, but this is from is priceless as the ruins of the garden of the Heian period.

  • I'd previously had to worry about, EI and-and then left at 5 am and have seen partner with Lotus. The morning meal with the entrance fee with program staff. Kongo hospital itself lies, JR Hanazono Station. In is a non-reasonable breakfast location beside the temple did not make good is bad, but far from the station go to login and get admission tickets of the Kongo Court, back to near the station that I realized on that day. I did, but very comfortable. But early Lotus the Lotus of looking forward to that never hurts, so pay the admission fee in double. 7: 20-visit achieve. It was the staff. Air paradise pure land of blooming only in that. 7 when is was until about 50 minutes, but group buses arrive at that time. But lost two admission 1,000 yen (changed to cheap JR tickets well?), went to temple to while away to come good and good breakfast.

  • Usually sooner, morning 7 a.m. as a view of Lotus Group where you can admire the flowering Lotus. Went for the first time, but the morning visit at 7:00 already there were many there were. Set up your camera and is desperate for flower photography. I would have gotten special permission is the only Temple in tripod prohibition, despite foreign tourists and errand, and reflectors had spread. Because everyone's purpose is Lianhua, fewer people in the temple, and could visit. I am glad to know there are many kinds of Lotus stock tags like flower names that can be see. Was going relatively slowly and stayed together with the garden, but it wasn't an hour. I think within walking distance from the famous Temple may spend one day in this area alone.
