Story & Recommendation
Enjoy the beautiful plum garden at Kitano Tenmangu
Established in 947, Kitano Tenmangu Shrine enshrines Sugawara Michizane (845 to 903), a scholar, writer and politician at the beginning of the Heian period. He is also known as a deity of wisdom. As Sugawara Michizane was born on June 25th, the Tenjin Festival is held every 25th of each month. On February 25th, Baikasai, Ume plum blossom festival, is held in Kitano Tenmangu Shrine. As Michizane died on February 25th, this festival is taken place to repose his soul. During Baikasai, there is an event called “Nodate” which Maiko, Geiko and Okami, their masters, would serve you tea in the plum garden. They are from Kamishichiken where is the oldest Geiko district in northwest Kyoto. You need to reserve your seat for this event, so please check the detailed information below. ▼Click here for Writer's Blog http://sharing-kyoto.com/Blog/b_Baikasai/
