妙満寺の桜/Cherry blossoms at Myomanji Temple

岩倉にある、#妙満寺 を訪問しました。

I visited #Myomanji Temple in Iwakura area.

妙満寺と比叡山 / Myomanji and Mt. Hiei


「雪の庭」と呼ばれるお庭と、お堂から臨む比叡山が見事です。

The famous features here are its garden called "yuki-no-niwa (Garden of Snow)" and the view of Mt. Hiei from the main hall.

今回は比較的早く咲く、しだれ桜を見に行ってきました。

The main purpose of this visit was to see a weeping cherry tree.


なんとこの日の夜がライトアップの試験点灯でした。

Surprisingly on this day, they did a trial of a night light up.

また、妙満寺には安珍・清姫伝説というお話で有名な釣り鐘があります。

Myomanji houses a famous bell with a legendary story (a bit horrible if I dare to say).


詳しくは過去記事をご参照ください。

Please visit the past post if you'd like to read it.


まだまだ他の木はつぼみですので、長く楽しめそうです。

Many of other trees are not blooming yet, so here it seems you can enjoy cherry blossoms for a long period.
