It is the best season to enjoy fall leaves in my Kansai region now.
The leaves are proud of their beauty at the very last moment.
I went to Kyoto last week. The fall leaves were bright in the sunlight.
Let me show you some of Kyoto today.
This is a part of the garden in Zenrinji temple commonly named ”Eikandou”.
Being strolling the garden, this atmosphere captured my eyes, where the gate with the brown wall
and the autumn leaves well match.
I continued my stroll in the city of Kyoto.
Here, this white wall makes the red leaves look bright.
These fallen leaves looked like they were playing together on the rock wall. Very pretty!
Especially in autumn, Kyoto becomes very crowded with lot's of tourists.
Although this Kenninnji Zen temple has some beautiful red maple trees
this place keeps its stillness compared to other temples in Kyoto.
The garden is created with rocks and sand, we say “Karesansui” meaning a dry landscape garden.
Using a minimalist design style represents vast oceans and the ebb and flow of water,
which reflects the Zen spirit,
Visitors are drawn to the exceptionally fine 'dragon and clouds' on the papered sliding door,
painted by Kaihoku Yusho in this temple.
Is there a touch of humour in this dignified dragon as he gazes at you?
