三室戸寺 Mimurotoji, Uji

(4.2/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Also known as the "flower temple," 三室戸寺 Mimurotoji prides itself on its vast, lush garden. Built on multiple tiers, the surrounding land blooms with hydrangeas, lotuses, and azaleas--and, in spring, weightless clouds of cherry blossoms. The graceful wooden temple dates back to the 19th century, constructed in the historical Edo style. Relax with a walk up the stone stairs that lead to the top of the complex, where you can admire it all from above. Bear in mind that you cannot bring food or drinks onto the temple grounds.

  • I went to the shrine on new year's day. But visit seasonal flowers at 15 minutes walk from Keihan electric railway mimurodo, is more quietly, could see the tower building and Mie.

  • Is the attraction of hydrangeas also called "hydrangea Temple". Lots of colorful hydrangeas during the peak season in June. Be lighted up at night for a limited period of time, so unlike day, fantastic.

  • I would pick a time, fall foliage season and hydrangeas when crowded, so otherwise somewhat slowly, look around. Saigoku 33 pilgrimage by Mairi. (The male response was not very good.) served the shogunate.
