This is a Buddhist temple in Kyoto. It’s main building is by the hillside, and it has a huge garden attached to it. It is part of the United World Heritage Site. It is on the top of my list of favourite places in Kyoto, but I haven’t got many photos unfortunately.
It was raining heavily when I was there. Over the green area, you can barely see Kyoto town…
You can definitely see the rain here!
A very green area of the garden with stones and lanterns.
By the Canal
A couple more photos but not taken at the temple…
Cloudy sky over the canal… The huge balconies belong to restaurants. These are popular places to hang-out to soak in the atmosphere during summer. We were there one evening – unfortunately, it was too touristy for our liking.
A guy having a nice quiet time and lots of space to himself in busy Kyoto.
Have a lovely weekend.
