Mimurotoji Temple, Uji

4.3
#2 of 30 in Things to do in Uji
Also known as the "flower temple," Mimurotoji Temple 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.

Hydrangea Temple in Kamakura, and nationally the hydrangea temple name but that many of temple hit on the mimuro Temple is exceptional.

    To drink of Lotus, Lotus will be held every year during the peak season. Drink from the stem in his mouth, through a small hole opened and poured to the leaves of the Lotus sake sake towards the stems from the leaves. Long life prayer should be quite a high-impact, so try them.

    Beautiful place to visit, my partner and I went in the off-season so the lotus and hydrangea weren't blooming, but the gardens were alive with autumn colours! No matter when you're visiting, this is worth the trip.

Where to stay in Uji

The small and historical city of Uji has a modest collection of accommodations, but many of them provide an atmospheric stay. Traditional "ryokan" (guesthouses) represent some of the most authentic and memorable places to stay here, with the most popular ones sitting on the western bank of the river. Elsewhere, a couple of simple hotels sit next to the main train station. The vast majority of visitors to Uji opt to stay in either Kyoto or Nara, with both accessible in under an hour by road and rail.
