The color is peculiar to the twilights from early May to Sakimatsuri of Gion Matsuri. When Atomatsuri started, the sky contains blue and red.

We have an opportunity to enjoy both of them in Ninnaji this year.

Haradanien garden: Cherry blossom supreme in Kyoto
Haradanien is a private garden only open to public in spring and autumn. It is little-known place and not a famous place to enjoy cherry blossoms like Heian Jingu shrine. It is the most popular destination among Kyoto-enthusiasts. It is well-kept secret place.

Kondo used to be a Shisinden of Imperial palace. It was constructed in 1612 and is the oldest one. Shisinden is the main hall in Imperial palace. Important ceremonies, like Sokui Rei (Enthronement of Emperor), are held there.

Now it works as the main hall of Ninnaji and a statue of Amitabha and those of its gradians are enshrined.
