  • It is a temple known for its snow garden. I visited on Wednesday morning. Standing in a quiet residential area, the temple has few visitors and makes you feel at home. I've been washing my mind for about an hour.

  • Myomanji is located in the western part of Iwakura ( north of Kamigamo ). The temple belongs to The Nichiren sect of Buddhism. The original form of the temple was founded in a dirrefent location in 1389 by the Priest Nichiju. Nichiju was a priest Hokke-kyo ( Lotus sutra ) later became the founder of Myomanji sect under the Nichiren sect of Buddhism. It was recent past in 1968 when it was relocated to the current location. It was moved to its present location as redevelopment took place in the area of Teramachi Nijo into downtown. More than 3000 trees of azalea were planted in recent years in front of the front gate near the Koi ( carp ) pond. The flower season of azalea is late spring around May. There is an impressive reprica of the famed stupa at Bodh Gaya of India where the Buddha gained his Enlightenment. Inside the structure is a graceful golden statue of the Buddha is enshrined.

  • 2019 1/27 now estimate snow and snow falling from the previous day. Setsugetsuka's garden and snow are suited well ☺ ️ ✨ is a nice space regardless of season, but especially snowy garden is a lovely space. That Sunday, had turned many people appreciate. Snow fall is taken early in the morning 🎵
