The red plum blossoms and "Shimogoryo Nagomi-ichi (market)"

Since the beginning of March, Kyoto has become like spring.

It seems difficult to hold a Hanami party (cherry blossom festival) this spring, but it is good to enjoy Hanami quietly by yourself or with a few people.

Plum and peach blossoms are at their best in various places, and early blooming cherry blossoms are also pleasing to the eyes.

At Shimo-goryo Shrine in Teramachi Marutamachi, the red plum blossoms of Yaesaki were carrying spring into a small precincts.

"Shimogoryo Nagomi-ichi (market)" will be held at Shimo-goryo Shrine on Saturday, March 6 and 20th.

On the day of the event, there will be booths featuring fresh flowers, old tools, Japanese-style paintings, vegetables, Kyoto candies, bread and rice from Kameoka, Kyoto.

There will also be a line of Fujibakama cosmetics by "Genji Fujibakama Kai" which is conserving and nurturing Fujibakama in Kyoto.

Fujibakama is a wild flower native to Kyoto and said to be a semi-endangered species.

Why don't you get familiar with Fujibakama through the scent of flowers that nobles in the Heian period wore?

Shimo Goryo Shrine is located at the southeast corner of Kyoto Imperial Palace, so I recommend you to walk around Teramachi-dori Street and so on.
