Mimurotoji Temple Uji


In the wide garden of Mimurotoji Temple in Uji there are 30 different kinds of hydrangea some of which seem to have the shape of a heart. June and early July is the perfect time to see these beautiful flowers in bloom.

Known also as the "flower temple," Mimurotoji Temple also draws visitors to its cherry blossoms in spring, azaleas in May and lotus flowers in July and August.
