Rinkeiji is an old, historical temple founded in 1601. The compound has a red blossom plum tree named Mikaiko that is more than 200 years old. Every year at the end of March, the beautiful crimson flowers blossom in multiple layers.
From ancient times, it is said that those that eat the fruit of the plums will be blessed with a child. For this reason, the plums are called the “plums of the nymphs”.
