The season of hydrangeas has come. I wonder where has the Tsuyu (梅雨, the rainy season) gone? Usually, it comes with hydrangea flowers but not this year.

The most famous place for viewing hydrangeas in Kyoto is Mimurodo-ji (三室戸寺) temple, otherwise called as "Ajisai-...

I love the town of Fushimi (伏見). The Fushimi district has been busy as the south front of Kyoto from the ancient times. In this district with sufficient quality water, rows of long-established Sakagura (酒蔵, Sake brewery) are creating an exotic atmosphere.

In addition, e...
