The rainy season has finished and summer days go on in Kyoto.
Although it is so hot and humid, it is the highest season to see around Kyoto city.
This time let us tell you 'Hokongoin', one of the beautiful spots around Usagi.
Hokongoin is a temple, and it takes about 15 minutes from Usagi by train.
(The nearest station is JR 'Hanazono', which is the 2nd station from 'Nijo'. Nijo is one of the accessible stations from Usagi.)
The temple was built about 1,200 years ago.
You can enjoy the seasonable view of a Japanese garden all the year, and today we present summer's beautiful one.
The color of the garden changes pink in spring, green in summer and coral in autumn since there are weeping cherry trees and Japanese maples all around the temple.
You can see also lotuses in this season. Hokongoin is famous of them and that is why it is selected as one of the flowery temples in Kansai, the West side of Japan.
If you stay our house Usagi, we recommend to see around the temple. You will be certainly satisfied with the fabulous view.
