Aside from Umeda in Osaka, there is another option to reach Kyoto. I took Keihan Line from Yodobashi station to Chusojima. Then, exchange to Uji line going to Mimurudo station.
In early weeks of May, you'll see full bloom of azaleas in Mimuroto-ji Temple. It is about 20 minute walk from the station.
Check if you can see the signage and directions while being covered by the branches.

Most of the Hydrangea buds are still not in blooming, most likely still be in June. But bees are already all over the place.
