Byakugo-ji Temple Wisteria Festival

It is the text from here.




Surrounded by seasonal trees and flowers, Byakugo-ji Temple looks like a garden but is an old temple in Tamba City with 1300 years of history. Every year from the beginning to the middle of May, Byakugo-ji Wisteria Festival is held at the best time to see these flowers. The flowers have very long clusters, and often called 'kushaku-fuji', meaning 120cm-long wisteria. The way they bend down just like a waterfall is breathtaking. At night with the lights, it creates such a contrasting image from the daytime. *During the event, traffic congestion is expected. Please use public transportation. Admission fee 300 yen for adults
