We were overwhelmed by beautiful 10,000 hydrangeas! We also liked all the garden in the forest. I would love to visit there again. 一面の紫陽花に圧倒されました。少し山の方なので、紫陽花と森林を一緒に楽しめたのも良かったです(^^)来年はツツジも見に行きたいと思います!

Mimurotoji is a temple founded about 1200 years ago in the northern hills of Uji City. It is also known as the "flower temple. Very nice place and not so far from Uji rail station. Entree fee is 500 JPY.

Mimurodo Temple is famous for its flowers: in May azalea, and in June hydrangea. As we visited there, azaleas were in full bloom, and the premises were turned into a carpet of flowers. If you visit this temple, you can combine it with other spots...More

This beautiful place was such a delight after the fiasco that is the Golden Temple. There were no tour buses or school groups. In fact only about 1% of the visitors were tourists. And oasis of calm and beauty. The hydrangeas are blooming now, but...More

One of several interesting religious complexes sitting quietly in the shadow of the Phoenix, Mimurotoji contains hillside gardens, a three-tier pagoda, an amidadō, a large hondō, all prefectural level cultural heritage sites dating to the Edo-jidai. The pagoda is actually half-sized. It would make an...More

itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the
