Are you in Kyoto this coming week after 12 April?
Make sure you visit these temples and shrines where the cherry blossoms are in full bloom!
List of cherry blossoms in full bloom (click on each to see the google map link!):
- Sanzen-in Temple
- Myōman-ji Temple
- Kamigamo Shrine
- Haradanien Garden
- Jobon-Rendai-ji Temple
- Hirano Shrine
- Uhōin Temple
- Heian Shrine
- Lake Biwa Canal, Yamashina area
- Iwashimizu Hachimangu (make sure you see the nearby Sewaritei park with the cherry blossom tunnel!)
Most of the cherry blossoms in full bloom now are in the mountains, but you can get there easily from Kyoto Station by train. For example, Arashiyama is just a 15min train ride from Kyoto! Wonderful for a day trip or overnight. Make sure you visit!
