善峯寺訪問記①/Visit Report on Yoshiminedera Temple①

11月9日に #善峯寺 (よしみねでら)を訪問しました。

I visited Yoshimine Temple(Officially translated) or, known as #Yoshiminedera, on Nov. 9th.



紅葉は山際から、さらには水辺から始まります。

Japanese maple starts to change its color from mountainous area, and as well as river or water sides.


少し時期には早いかなと思いながらではあったものの、今年は全体的に色づきが早くこの日も十分に楽しめました。

I honestly thought it would have been a bit early to enjoy autumn view, but it was wonderful, and I felt it's earlier this year.



善峯寺は紅葉のみならず、四季折々の風景が有名で、秋でなくとも楽しめます。少しアクセスが大変ですが、是非一度は訪れてほしいお寺です。

Yoshimine Temple is not only famous for its autumn scenery but also every season's beauty. It could be a bit tough to reach to this temple because it's in a mountain, but I strongly recommend to visit it.


日本一の松とも名高い「遊龍松」と、市街地の眺めは圧巻!

The must-see is the pine tree, renowned as the best in all over Japan, and the view from the mountain! You'll see the whole Kyoto City below your eyes!



次回は松のお話をしようと思います。この右端の松が「遊龍松」です。

Let me save the detailed story of its pine tree for the next post. The pine is the right side of the picture.


とても雄大な松です。

So graceful and huge!
