Azalea Festival at Shiofune Kannon-ji Temple in Ome

While I was in the Ome area, I went to see the azalea festival at Shiofune Kannon-ji Temple (塩船観音寺). The temple is surrounded by a huge azalea garden with a giant statue of Kannon watching over it.

Above, bell. It is possible to ring it for 100 yen.

  1. Stunning! So very beautiful! I always go to see the Azalea Festival in Muskogee, Oklahoma but the two are so different! Beautiful in their own rights! Thank you for sharing this beauty, that most of us will never see in person and the closeups are stunning!
