Fujimori shrine hydrangea and Mt.Oiwa overlooking Fushimi-Momoyama Castle and a large staircase Fushimi-Momoyama Mausoleum

Grading: 

Fujimori Shrine is an old shrine in Fukakusa, south of Kyoto, which is said to have been enshrined here since before the capital was transferred to the Heian period. There are two vast hydrangea gardens on the shrine grounds, with approximately 3,500 hydrangea of various varieties in bloom. Although a low mountain at 182 meters above sea level, Mt. Oiwa offers a spectacular view of Osaka and Fushimi-Momoyama Castle. A paved path leads to the observation deck, making for a light hiking experience. There are many sights to see, including a beautiful bamboo grove and Fushimi-Momoyama Castle built by Hideyoshi Toyotomi. The Fushimi-Momoyama Mausoleum, dedicated to Emperor Meiji, is a secluded spot with a solemn atmosphere, and the 230-step grand staircase seems to lead up to heaven when viewed from below. The walking distance is about 10 km on paved paths, level 2. We will disband at Keihan Fushimi-Momoyama Station, but only those who wish will go to lunch at a restaurant in a renovated sake brewery in Fushimi.
