A glimpse of old Japan
Kyoto is much better explained through photographs than words. We spent three days exploring the temples, gardens and historic streets of Japan’s old capital city.
Gardens at Ginkaku-ji Temple, better known as the Silver Pavilion.
A brief bout of snow at Nijo Castle.
Koto-in Zen Temple at Daitoku-ji. One of our favorites.
A zen garden at Ryogen-in, Daitoku-ji.
Lanterns light the night at Fushimi Inari Shrine.
A feathered guardian at the Golden Pavilion, Kinkaku-ji.
Mount Fuji symbolized in sand at Ginkaku-ji Temple.
A pagoda piercing Orion at Shinyo-do Temple.
Wow, beautiful. Thanks for capturing and sharing. I’m in awe just looking the photos. I can only imagine what it felt like to be there. One day!
