Loving Nature

Cherry blossom, hydrangea, rose, azalea . . .  
The seasonal blossoms delight our eyes and let us know the changing seasons.

The season of cherry blossom: it’s the time when the greatness and empowerment of nature sweep across the country. In Yamatokoriyama, the gorgeous sight of the blooming cherry trees harmonizing with the castle ruins is a well-known attraction.

By and by, the view changes into fresh green and red azaleas, which grow on the grounds of Jikoin Temple. You can also view the roses at Matsuo Temple, known as “turn-away-evil” temple, from May to June when its rose garden is open to the public.

In the early summer, the precinct of Yatadera Temple will be filled with some 8,000 hydrangeas, of over 60 different species. Especially, the sight of the gregarious hydrangeas on the left side of the main hall is astonishing. Strolling through the labyrinth of hydrangeas, you will be led to a marvelous world.
Additionally, Yamato Folklore Park offers you an iris garden.
With the end of these flowers’ season, the hot summer begins.

Feeling the chilly breeze, we can see the golden ears of rice bowing to greet the arrival of autumn, while the tinted maple leaves cover the whole city with red and yellow.
Soon it becomes increasingly cold; however, with the dawn of the new year season, red and white plum trees giving a noble impression start to bloom. At Chinjyuan, various colors of large-flowered camellias raise our hope for the coming Spring.

In Yamatokoriyama, a variety of flowers bloom beautifully throughout the year. What we have to bear in mind is that behind the beautiful scenery there is always someone who takes care of these flowers. Love and tenderness is the key to co-existing with nature.  After all, Nature would never betray the heart that loves her.
