Temple

Taizo-in Temple is one of the sub temples of Myoshinji Temple and said to be the oldest. It was built in 1404, and the abbot’s chamber was constructed in the early Edo period. The dry landscape garden said to be the work of Kano Motonobu is magnificent. Muromachi period monk Josetsu’s “Hyonenzu” is designated a National Treasure. According to the season, there are held special time/person-limited events for spring cherry blossoms, summer lotuses and autumn changing leaves.

葵祭の時期に京都に来たので藤の花を見たくて訪れましたが、今年は桜と同様に藤の花も例年より開花が早く、4月の末までだったそうです。

お庭には見事な枝垂れ桜の木があり、それを見れただけでもまた春に訪れる楽しみな場所ができました。

Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
