#1 Toji temple 東寺

Near Gojiu no To pagoda 五重塔西側

2018年3月29日東寺の桜

Toji is famous for Fuji Zakura and Sakura illumination but even so-called Kyoto enthusiasts don’t know its Kawazu Zakura. We have 2 places to admire it.

The first one is located near Gojiuno To pagoda. There are Kawazu Zakura trees to the west of it. We can be there with admission fee. Toji is one of popular destinations for tourists especially in Sakura season begins late March. Kazu Zakura blooms in mid-March and quite a few people know they can enjoy it in Toji temple. So, we can adore it in silence.

一番めは五重塔の西側です。ここは、立体曼荼羅が配される講堂や五重塔がある有料エリの中にあります。ご覧のように五重塔を背景に存分に楽しむことができます。

I think it would be better to visit Toji in rainy day. In the gentle drizzle, the warm breeze let the petals go. This is a typical tranquil moment in early spring in Kyoto. Kyoto suffers from overtourism  these years but Toji in Kawzu Zakura season narrowly escape it. In near future, this calmness might be ruined.

And think about Sakura blooms a couples of later. This is the way I every year. Imagine something doesn’t exist with the help of what exists.

The best way to enjoy Sakura in Toji temple

If possible, enjoy Kawazu Zakura in mid-March and Somei Yoshino (so-called Sakura) a couple of weeks later. Night illumination is strongly recommended. Toji shows us the best illumination in Kyoto.
