Hello! This is Yoshi!!
I hear that the best season for full-blown ume blossoms is around early March.
So, I visited Jonangu Shrine, where there is a beautiful Japanese garden for ume blossoms, on March 8th!
Jonangu Shrine is well known as "Houyoke-no-taisha (方除の大社)," which is believed to remove calamities related to direction.
The shrine has five different kinds of Japanese gardens: Haru-no-yama (春の山）, "Heian-no-niwa (平安の庭)," "Muromachi-no-niwa (室町の庭)," "Momoyama-no-niwa (桃山の庭)," and "Jonanrikyu-no-niwa (城南離宮の庭)
Each of the gardens has a variety of Japanese traditional views, which leads us to feel relaxed and calm.

I was impressed with beautiful ume blossoms and camellias in the Shinen area.
|Welcome to Shinen (神苑) !!|
Why don't you visit Japanese gardens with ume blossoms before the sakura season?
