Sightseeing of cherry blossom spots during Kyoto spring⑤Feel the romance of Heian period through the cherry blossoms of "Hokongo-in"

There are many shrines in Kyoto, but the spots recalling the Heian Period are very valuable.

An example would be the Heian Period Garden in "Hokongo-in", immediately beside JR "Hanazono" Station.

In summer, the lotus flowers bloom, but in spring it is famous for cherry blossoms called "Taikenmon'in" cherry trees.

It is a cherry tree named after Emperor Toba's wife Taikenmon'in, who rebuilt the temple.

The petals tinged with purple recall her ancient unique beauty.
