Top 5 Places to See Sakura (Cherry Blossoms) in Kyoto!


Spring is one of the best seasons to visit
Kyoto, to see the beautiful cherry blossoms that
you can see captured in photos. While sakuras are incredibly stunning, there are too many fascinating places
to see. So today, Japanesquest presents the top 5 places to see sakuras in Kyoto! Number 5: Hirano Shrine Hirano Shrine, which has over 1200 years
of history, is known as a great place to see
cherry blossoms. The cherries here tend to bloom earlier. Over 400 trees start flowering one after
another beginning at the end of March. The Hirano Shrine is also a popular place
to hold “hanami,” an outdoor party held under the sakura
trees to cherish the beauty of their flowers. Number 4: Arashiyama District Arashiyama is a touristy district that is
attractive due to the vast natural beauty. There are many places to enjoy cherry
blossoms here, such as Tenryuji temple, and the Sagano Romantic Train. During cherry blossom season, the entire Arashiyama Mountain becomes
colored in a sea of green and cherries. The road along the Katsura River to the
Togetsukyo Bridge is especially enchanting to walk down
while viewing cherry blossoms. Number 3: Ninnaji Temple Ninnaji temple is known for the
late-blooming omurozakura cherry trees. About 200 omurozakuras are planted on
the left side of the center gate. Since the usual height of the omurozakura
trees is as low as 2 meters, you can enjoy their cherry blossoms at
eye level. The omurozakura trees with the five-story
pagoda as a backdrop are a magnificent sight that has not changed
since the Edo period in the 17th century. Number 2: Philosopher’s Path Philosopher’s Path refers to the road that leads from Ginkakuji temple to
Nyakuoji Bridge. It has been chosen as one of the
“100 Best Paths in Japan.” The name is from Kitaro Nishida, an
eminent philosopher at Kyoto University, who used to stroll here while
philosophizing. About 300 cherry trees bloom along this
2-kilometer path and turn the road into a romantic
cherry tunnel. Number 1: Daigoji Temple Daigoji Temple is the most famous place
for beautiful cherry blossoms. Starting with the cherry trees along both
sides of the entrance, about 1000 trees bloom in various places
on the site for nearly 3 weeks. It has even been called “Hana no Daigo,” since Japan’s second “great unifier,”
Toyotomi Hideyoshi, held an utterly luxurious hanami party
here. Daigoji temple is definitely a must-see
place during cherry blossom season in Kyoto. A few tips from Japanesquest. The peak of cherry blossom season in Kyoto
is usually from late March to early April. Due to heavy traffic jams, trains and walking are much easier and are
recommended rather than buses. If all hotels in Kyoto are booked, try staying in a neighboring prefecture, such as Osaka, Shiga, or Hyogo. Kyoto is less than 1 hour by train anyway. That’s today’s episode of Japanesquest. If you enjoyed our sakura special, please give us a like, share,
