Wendy, now I understand what you thought, Thank you! ★My trip to Kyoto from March 31 to April 2, 2022. Day 2-2(1) Daigo-ji Temple It was a perfect day to visit Daigo-ji Temple. It was beautiful day and weeping cherries and Somei-yoshinos were in peak bloom. Daigo-ji has known as a cherry temple since Toyotomi Hideyoshi had a Hamami Party there in 1598. Now there is a festival which replicate the parade for Hideyoshi’s Hanami Party. Daigo-ji temple is a World Heritage Site and a very large area. It divided into 2 parts: Kami-daigo, upper Daigo and Shimo-daigo, lower parts. Kami-daigo is a mountain area. You have to walk 60 minutes on the mountain walk to get there. I haven’t visited there yet. Shimo-daigo is still very large area. Itis famous for weeping cherries. I don’t know any other places which has so many Weeping cherries. It is divided into 3 paid areas, Reihoukan (museum), Sanboin and Garan (a complex of the temple buildings), and a free area with a restaurant and stalls, and corridors. There are some weeping cherries at the entrance gate but there are mostly Somei-yoshinos on the corridors. Main area of the temple is Garan but we visited Reihokan. Reihokan Reihokan is a museum. Many large Sidare-zakuras and other single cherries are planted around the museum buildings. There are some double cherries called Hakusan-O-temari. But they hadn’t started to bloom yet. Also Yae-beni-shidare hadn't started yet.
