This is a very ancient temple complex. It is especially beautiful during rainy season (It is famous for, and rightly so, it’s stunning array of hydrangeas. In fall, it is surrounded by vibrant maples. And in winter, there are camellias of many varieties. The complex is undergoing restoration at this time so all areas are not accessible, but it is still worth the effort to go. Hopefully it will be even more visitor friendly when restoration is complete.

This was the family temple of the Matsudairas. It had fallen into a state of disrepair... virtually abandoned. When I visited there several years ago one could imagine its former glory, but it was in need of some major maintenance. I’m happy to report that someone has been busy working on restoring this temple. Many areas have been spruced up and repaired. It is well worth a visit. I went there to photograph camellias. The last I visited they were very overgrown and hard to find. The experience this time was much improved. This place is known for its hydrangea, and there are signs of Sakura, maples, and ume ... promising a new look for each season.This is a place for those looking for a bit of peace and quiet and Japanese history. I’m looking forward to seeing how it progresses from here. I’ll be going again soon.

深溝松平家の菩提寺である本光寺は、三河の椿郷として知られ、本堂裏手の丘陵地には、世界各国のツバキ、400種類、1,000本が有志の方の手によって植えられています。また初夏の季節は本堂に向かう石畳の参道の両脇に見事な紫陽花が咲き誇ります。
1/19(日)椿の様子を見に行きました。少し早かったようでちらほらでしたが、竹林を抜け山道を登っていくのは運動にもなるし、静かなので心も穏やかになります。
このお寺は1600年くらいに建立され、現在改修工事中ですが、苔むした庭も見事でいつ行っても飽きない素敵な場所です。

やはり紫陽花が綺麗。
平日でも意外に混んでいる。
直近の道は狭く 運転注意。駐車場も狭いが、入れ替りは速い。

近場で紫陽花を見に行くとなると、ここは二番目に有名な所だと聞いていたので、とりあえず行ってみました。
行った時期もまだ自粛が解禁されるかどうかといった時だったので混雑もそれなりにあり、駐車場も地元のボランティアの方々達が一生懸命やられてました。
