Enjoying the rainy Kyoto in June ①Enjoying the rainy season in the beautiful Kyoto's "Flower Temple"

Mimuroto Temple was built in 770 (the first year of the Hoki Era) and enshrines the Senju Kannon Bosatsu (Thousand-Armed Kannon Bodhisattva, a Buddhist Goddess of Mercy) as its main deity.

It is also known as the "Hana Temple" (flower temple).

This is because a grand number of plants is in the temple area, including 10,000 hydrangeas, 2,000 azaleas, about 250 lotuses and so on.

Blooming flowers are visible during every season.

Hydrangea garden is opened from June 1st, and light-up events will be carried out from June 8th.

Please take a look at this garden: a 16500㎡ area filled with 50 varieties of hydrangea plants.
