Time goes by so quickly!
I returned home after spending a week at my younger sister's house, the sister who lost her husband in July.
Being with her was the only thing I could do to help her, I thought. Although she was busy doing many things
after her husband's death, we shared plenty of time talking.I hope she is going to find a new life by herself,
dealing with her grievous loss.
From Kyoto to Nara
Here I am picking some photos from my summer vacation.
Nara Park has been our granddaughter's favorite place from when she was a little baby.
She likes to see Nara deer, giving crackers to them, now that she is very good at feeding Nara deer.
No more crackers! Enough!
The Nara deer understood its manners well.
The following day
Kinkaku Temple shone surprisingly bright under the gray sky, which is one of the most famous temples in Kyoto.
The temple itself is very unique. It is more lavish than other temples in Japan. There are a lot of tourists,
so taking pictures here is quite a challenge. Also you have to find a spot where there are no tree branches hanging down
After our stroll at Kinkaku Temple we continued walking to Ryoanji Temple.
It is indeed a simple garden, in which white sand is spread, and on it fifteen rocks are arranged
into five islands in a small space of twenty-two by ten meters.
My husband is always willing to click shutters when he was asked.
Thank you for visit.
