Not usually open to the public except when Azaleas in bloom; permission is required from Anraku-ji
Added to JGarden:
Known for its clipped azaleas, this small temple hugs the Higashiyama hills with several small gardens around its buildings. It is only open to the public while the massive, sculptural azaleas are in bloom
In the morning mist that lies
Over Akashi Bay,
My longings follow with the ship
That vanishes behind the distant isle.
Akashi no ura no
Fune o shi zo omou.
