  • Jonangu Shrine is ancient, but its gardens date from the 1960s. Don’t let that put you off! They are definitely worth a visit. There are five separate gardens, each with a distinct character of its ow...  more »
  • I had an errand to go to Kyoto in February, so I thought I'd stop by somewhere, so I was looking for a light spot. I listened to the information that the plum tree of Jonangu is beautiful. I went to Kitano Tenmangu Shrine in the morning, but it was also hard to get on the bus in a very crowded way. When I came here in the afternoon, it was very empty, and the dripping plum sat in full bloom. And, it is really wonderful that camellia falls at the foot! I was able to enjoy it comfortably. It is easy to get by bus from Kyoto Station.

  • Jonangu was the south guardian gate of the ancient capital, Kyoto. This shrine is believed to have a power to purify bad direction, lead success in construction and transport. The garden is famous for weeping plum trees. I visited here on 13th Feb 2019, unfortunately only some of them were in bloom and most of them were still in buds. But yet they were lovely and worth visiting.
  • Visited during autumn, vibrant, beautiful very cared for gardens! Only 600 Yen for full access around the shrine. Would definitely visit again in spring.
