In this Sakura (Cherry blossom) season, there are some light-up events in Kyoto area.
I went to Toji- temple, one of the oldest temples in Kyoto.
Its 5 stories pagoda is undoubtedly the icon of Kyoto for thousands years……
What a beautiful combination of Sakura & Pagoda!
This conspicuous Sakura is called “Fuji-Sakura”, “Fuji” is not from “Mount Fuji,” but the meaning is “The only one.”
It was transplanted in 2006, in commemoration of 1200th year of Kobo-taishi’s coming back from China.
The tree is more than 120 years old.
Huge Toji temple area is beautifully and solemnly lit up.
Lucky enough, the night was full moon.
