Story & Recommendation
See the beautiful green maple leaves of the Kitano Tenmangu Shrine
From the mid April to the end of May, the Kitano Tenmangu Shrine opens up its grounds for the Aomomiji Special Exhibition.
“Aomomiji” is the Japanese word for the green leaves that maple trees grow in spring. This even is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a different side of the Kitano Tenmangu Shrine’s famous maple trees and get into a spring mood.
Where the event is held, you will also see the “odoi,” an earthen embankment surrounding a large portion of Kyoto’s inner city that was built on the orders of daimyo Toyotomi Hideyoshi to protect against floods and attacks from outside forces.
Although the odoi is famous for its beautiful autumn leaves, the newly grown maple leaves of spring and early summer are just as worth seeing.
Besides getting to see the maple trees, the entrance fee for the exhibition will also allow you into the Homotsuden Hall of Treasures to see the Japanese swords and other treasures inside.
