Mimurotoji Temple, Uji

4.1
Also known as the "flower temple," Mimurotoji Temple prides itself on its vast, lush garden. Built on multiple tiers, the surrounding land blooms with hydrangeas, lotuses, and azaleas--and, in spring, weightless clouds of cherry blossoms. The graceful wooden temple dates back to the 19th century, constructed in the historical Edo style. Relax with a walk up the stone stairs that lead to the top of the complex, where you can admire it all from above. Bear in mind that you cannot bring food or drinks onto the temple grounds.

  • I went for a walk alone on weekdays to look for hydrangea that looked like a heart. The people were quite sparse, and i was able to see hydrangea carefully on weekdays.

  • It's a great place to stay. It's surrounded by green, so it's like being in nature.

  • This is a old temple with a big garden, beautiful landscape, and attractive architecture. You will see specific flowers and colors every season. I was very impressed with the expansive and lovely garden here, especially hydrangeas in all their many splendoured colours and varieties.
  • This is a great place to visit on middle of June. The hydrangea bloom so beautifully when I visited the shrine. Only the local Japanese visit and not much tourist know about this place. Do not forget to try the macha ice which is good for the long walk.
