(Kyoto-77/Before Covid - Spring)日本美味しいもの巡り Japan delicious food and wine tour

緊急事態宣言が解除され観光シーズンが再開。あらためてコロナ前の京都の四季を振り返る。

春の京都、桜。

まずは「大内山仁和寺」。真言宗御室派の総本山の寺院。宇多天皇が出家後の住まいとした為「御室御所」と呼ばれ、朝廷の雅を今に残す優雅な御所建築と、遅咲きの御室桜で知られる。

The state of emergency was lifted and the tourist season would resume soon.  Looked back on the four seasons of Kyoto before Covid.
Spring in Kyoto, the season of cherry blossoms.

First, "Ouchizan Ninnaji Temple".  The head temple of the Omuro sect of Shingon Buddhism.  The temple was called "Omuro Imperial Villa" because Emperor Uda used it as his residence after he was ordained as a priest.  It was known for its elegant Imperial palace architecture, which still retains the elegance of Imperial Court, and the late blooming Omuro cherry blossoms.

土壌が粘土質で深く根を張れず低木の桜となるらしい。仁和寺のシンボル、五重塔と御室桜。

The soil is too clayey to allow for deep rooting, resulting in low-growing cherry trees.  The view of symbols of Ninnaji Temple, the five-story pagoda and Omuro cherry blossoms.

こちらは「平安神宮」の神苑に咲く紅枝垂れ桜。特にライトアップされた夜桜が息をのむほど美しい。

Next, the red weeping cherry trees bloomed in Shinen Garden of Heian Jingu Shrine.  The cherry blossoms were breathtakingly beautiful, especially at night when they were illuminated.

The next stop was "Kofuzan Honmanji Temple". This major temple of Nichiren Buddhism.  The large cherry tree was in full bloom in front of the main hall was beautiful.  It is young and powerful, with magnificent branches.  It was the sister cherry tree of the famous weeping cherry tree "Gion Weeping Cherry Tree" in Maruyama Park.
