Story & Recommendation
Various weeping plums and camellias bring the coming of spring
Weeping plums and camellia festival is held from February 18th to March 22th in Jonangu shrine which is located south of Kyoto. Traditional Jonangu shrine was constructed for keeping a peace of Japan, when the capital was relocated to Kyoto (794). Jonangu shrine is worshiped for the successful completion of moving and construction as well as a good physiognomy of houses. Zinen (the place where is a garden and a precinct) is really popular as a healing garden, where we can enjoy weeping plums, camellias, cherry blossoms, wisterias, azaleas and maple leaves throughout the year. The 150 weeping plums whose colors are weak pink or white bring to us spring atmosphere during weeping plums and camellia festival at the Spring mountain where, which is located in the west of the shrine. Please enjoy a color variation of early and late plums.

Visitors are fewer in the early blooming period, so you can enjoy with relaxation. A great day to visit in the late blooming period is the next day of a strong wind or rain. Because, a lots of plum petals are fallen and these petals may make a beautiful plum petals carpet.
