Do you know Nagaoka Tenman-gu Shrine?
Because it is far from the Kyoto city a little, this Shrine in Nagaokakyo-shi of Kyoto is not so famous for a tourist.
However, Nagaoka Tenman-gu Shrine is a spot to the people in the know as a famous place of the Kirishima azalea.
Corridor of Kirishima azalea of about 60m which follows from the entrance is splendid. And you can look free of charge.
Flowering time of the Kirishima azalea is from Mid-April to Early May. This flowering time is slightly later than cherry tree.
So, it is recommended for the person who missed a cherry tree of Kyoto.(○´艸｀)
Please go to this place in full bloom time. You can see the superb view that does not lose to cherry tree!

Flowering time of the Kirishima azalea is from Mid-April to Early May.
Because flowering information is published in the Website of Nagaoka Tenman-gu Shrine from the middle of April, please refer to it.
This shrine is known as Mikaeri-tenjin or “hard-to-leave” shrine, because Michizane Sugawara, who was a popular poet, visited this shrine on his journey to Dazaifu, Kyushu, upon demotion, and he deeply expressed regret to leave this place. The autumn scenery over Hachijogaike Pond is an artistic sight. The autumn leaves look their best against the vibrant red-colored shrine. The garden takes on beautiful brocade-like colors. The azaleas here, around 150 years old, are very popular. They grow on either side of the approach to the shrine. The scenery is picturesque.
