Although it is not well known, there is a neat hydrangea garden behind the main hall of “Shinnyo-do Temple” (entrance free). Still in full bloom. It is a hydrangea spot that is still in time.
“Yokokuji-Temple” is the best recommended spot in the hydrangea season. However the traffic access is not so good, it is absolutely worth going.
“Tsu-yu”(Rainy Season) at Mimurotoji Temple, here appears an Ajisai(Hydrangea) blue world. This temple located at south side of Kyoto has a very famous garden where 10,000-Hydrangea are planted at.
Sanzen-in temple located in the countryside in the northern part of Kyoto City is a little far but worth a visit.
Fujimori Shrine at this timing is famous for its hydrangea garden. However this year there seems to be few flowers. So unfortunately we cannot recommend it much.
If you visit “Sanjusangendo Temple” or “Kyoto National Museum”, stop by this “Chishaku-in Temple” as well. Hydrangea is at its best now.
The garden of “Umenomiya Taisha Shrine” is famous for enjoying the seasonal flowers.
Now Iris (Japanese name: Hana-shobu) and hydrangea also is coming up.
