  • A little up there, "Sumizenji" It is a few minutes' walk from Sumizen Train Station on the Keihan Train. It is said that it is called Sakuraji temple because it is 874 years old and the cherry blossoms are beautiful. It is famous that Ueno Yoshio, a poet of the Heian period, mourned the death of his friend Mototsune Fujiwara and wrote "This year only blooms in ink dye" in the cherry blossoms in the field of fukasa. Please come at the time when the cherry blossoms bloom.

  • I don't never have big temples, even thousands of books. Mixed with very good access, this temple is minor. But the cherry blossoms blooming cherry blossom season, and on the other side of the gate outpouring that looks good from the road. Momentum was a little overwhelming so. This sumizome name sung in the Kokin Wakashū "fukakusa of cherry and oh my heart only if this year's bloom black" that is called sumizome cherry blossoms here, and is said to be based on a legend that bloomed in the anthracite as Waka who spare the memory, and the poem.
