Cherry Blossoms at Tainei-ji Temple

This is one of Yamaguchi Prefecture's famous cherry blossom-viewing spots, and every year it sees many visitors from across the prefecture and beyond. The temple grounds will be colored with the blossoms of about 120 trees: Yoshino cherries, weeping cherries, and yae-zakura cherries. The best spot to view the cherry blossoms at Tainei-ji Temple is along the temple road from in front of Tainei-ji's Main Hall to Toyokawa Inari Shrine. Enjoy the gentle spring sunlight and the temple path covered in blooming flowers with a nice walk. The blossoms are wonderful in full bloom, of course, but they are also beautiful fluttering away in the breeze. Come snap a shot of these dancing blossoms near the historical relics and locations of three Shakyamuni Buddha statues, a statue of the 16 arhats, and the reflecting pond in which samurai Ouchi Yoshitaka saw his reflection for the last time, and the stone on which he placed his helmet there. During the cherry blossom bloom (around early April), there will also be a nighttime light-up of the cherry blossoms, from sunset to 11:00 p.m. Come enjoy the cherry blossoms as the spring nights begin to warm up.
