Peonies at Kennin-ji Temple

April 25, 2018

Within the Gion (祇園) district, one of the Hanamachi (花街, districts where Maiko and Geiko reside and work) in Kyoto, there is Kennin-ji (建仁寺) temple, very famous for Fujin Raijin zu Byobu (風神雷神図屏風, a folding screen of Wind God and Thunder God) by Sotatsu TAWARAYA (俵屋宗達), as well as being the first Zen-sect temple in Japan founded by Eisai Zenji (栄西禅師) in 1202.


Today, around the Hattou (法堂, lecture hall), peony flowers are blooming all over.  Peony has been referred to as a King of Flowers in Japan, and literally have a regal presence. The ambiance around the Hattou is usually very quiet and calm, but now filled with animated gaiety and elegance. Please dress up in YUMEYAKATA Kimono and visit there to see the flowers.
