Kyoto life Blogs

GTK would like to introduce the real Kyoto life by GTK bloggers. Some of them migrated from their countries
to Kyoto, and want to share how to enjoy the Kyoto life. These blogs are quite useful for visiting Kyoto, and also
for people who hope to live in Japan.

Sakura in Ninna-ji Temple

  • April 19-2010
  • Chikako Takemoto
  • Kyoto

I visited Omuro-Ninna-ji Temple to see the unique and famous sakura called Omuro-zakura yesterday. This kind of sakura is shorter than usual and blooms late, in the middle of April.
The back building of the right photo is 5-stage-pagoda of Ninna-ji. It’s a typical photo scene with temple and sakura.
I enjoyed it in a festive atmosphere. I’m looking for the new season of the new leaves.

昨日は、有名な御室桜を見に、仁和寺に行きました。これまで何度もjournal Kyoto の記事にはしてきましたが、実はこの目で見るのは初めてでした。噂には聞いていましたが、背が低く、真横に満開の花びらを見る事が出来る御室桜は評判以上に豪華でした。桜の樹のバックに映る五重の塔がこれまた映えますね。。今期のJR東海の「そうだ京都に行こう」はこの御室仁和寺、でしたね。京都に住むようになり、このCMが見れなくなり残念ですが、昨日だって家からバスで30分。実に贅沢な京都ライフです!
