Weeping Cherry Trees in Sumiyoshi Grand Shrine and Temporary Palace

The season of cherry blossoms is almost over.

I took these pictures of weeping cherry trees in Sumiyoshi Grand Shrine last week.

The weeping cherry trees in Sumiyoshi Grand Shrine have been a lot to do with imperial family.

Emperor Godaigo (1318~1339) of South Court in Northern and Southern Courts period liked the weeping cherry tree in Sumiyoshi Grand Shrine. This was planted in memory of Emperor Godaigo later.

Actually, there used to be a temporary palace of South Court near Sumiyoshi Grand Shrine.

This weeping cherry tree was planted in commemoration of the wedding of current prince and princess.
