Kitano Tenmangu is probably the most famous place for plum blossoms in Kyoto.
At the end of February, the "Plum Blossom Festival" will begin, and Maiko will join the nearby Hanamachi, Kamishichiken.
They come and make tea for me. It's really like Kyoto.
Sugawara no Michizane's family crest is plum, and when Michizane leaves Kyoto, a song is played.
"Eastern wind blows and smells. Plum blossoms without a lord, forget about spring."
The relationship between Ume and Tenjin is inseparable.
By the way, the meaning of the song is
If the easterly wind of spring blows, don't forget to wake up the plum blossoms even if you don't have a master.
It means something like that.
Kitano Tenmangu has many events and episodes related to plum blossoms.
Even if you don't bother to enter Umekaen and pay 700 yen
A nice place to go to see the plum blossoms.
Moreover! Free parking here! !! This is big in Kyoto.
Most of the temples and shrines have toll parking lots, but they are really generous.
So, you can go to see the plum blossoms without hesitation.
Hibari roof, plum crest, and red plum. Don't be a picture.
A clean and sunny day. You can enjoy plum blossoms as if you were taking a walk.
Yes, this is the main shrine.
Actually, I'm always curious about this Oribe lantern, but it's hard to understand how it's different from the others.
The explanation is also difficult to understand. The manga "Hyogemon" is exaggerated, so it's confusing.
I don't care if you look at the plum blossoms.
