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.

  • Left the city of Kyoto and Uji in little's appearance at the Temple in the mountains, very calm. Because here the too famous people pouring lots is still worth a look. There are steep stairs and the difference between the high and low, so people knees pain again too!

  • So little is so vast, and the difference between the high and low note of lack of exercise! Because there are many shrines, temples and gardens in the hydrangea Temple, is famous, other than that season delight to 10-minute spectacular. So than entrance close 30 minutes ago entrance closed it for early admission.

  • 33 to no. 10 the temples is one of the sacred places, but what to say is here include hydrangeas. Therefore, only during the rainy season, 5 Star Award. Hydrangea Temple in Kamakura, and nationally the hydrangea temple name but that many of temple hit on the mimuro Temple is exceptional. Hydrangea bloom crammed with cleavage of the approach followed in the main hall located on the heights of the mountains is a sight to see.

  • Beautiful area, many kind types of flowers :)
  • Pretty lotus flowers and hydrangeas in the summer
  • 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.
  • Very beautiful Japanese style garden with falling red leave.
  • Tranquil place to enjoy nature specially flowers and colors of falls

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.
