Overcoming the cold winter in Kyoto, finally
It's time to go out comfortably.
So, this time, I would like to take a walk around the town of Uji to relieve the lack of exercise in winter.
Traveling with tea, Kyoto
This time, we visited Mimurotoji Temple in Uji City, which is said to be one of the most famous flower spots in Kyoto.
The temple is famous for its azaleas in spring and hydrangeas in the rainy season.
The long stairs with uphills and slopes make me feel intimidated, but...
Seek the superb view at the top!
Even I, who lacks exercise, was able to exercise just right from the station to the inside of the temple💦
The azalea garden reaches its peak from the end of April to the beginning of May.
In spring, 20,000 azaleas, including purple, pink, and white, fill the grounds.
In the warm and sunny weather of spring
You can take a leisurely stroll through the brightly colored garden.
The view of colorful azalea flowers is a masterpiece!
There are various types of azaleas, such as the difference in the shape of the petals,
The more you observe, the more fun you will have.
