Kyoto


After being so long in “nature” (well, Kumano Kodo is perhaps the most you might get of that in Japan – aside the interior, where there are no paths, no accessible space) we went to Kyoto.

Especially the gardens were our main interest Smiley

Their twisted and gnarly trees

Small bridges over ponds

And gateways

Another dragon at the end of a roof – normally there would be ogres but dragons count as well Zwinkerndes Smiley

What is in the script?? Must be either very nasty or juicy if the expression is any guide… Engel

The whole place of Nanzen-Ji is very peaceful and intriguing

After Nanzen-Ji closed (most places do so at 17:00) we headed a bit down the “Philosopher’s path” named after a professor of philosophy who did the 2 km every day to university for some 35+ years.

Bamboo is growing as the natural forest (well it should be called meadow as it is grass technically Zwinkerndes Smiley)

And side-shrines next to natural places

Evening creates a wonderful mood

And these little bridges over the stream are just lovely

Time to go home Zwinkerndes Smiley

On the way back we had a very interesting meal.

The paper (yes, it’s just thicker paper) doesn’t burn…

What should I take???

DSCF1178

Hotpot is always a good choice

Currently there is a sock promotion… When you buy a bottle of drink you get a sock with it to cover the bottle so it stays cooler – very Japanese Zwinkerndes Smiley
