Diary....November (2)

                                                                                                             Hi, Friends!

                                                 Kyoto is absolutely gorgeous during autumn foliage season and very crowded.
                                             This was  the beginning of autumn leaves in Koudai-ji Temple in Kyoto. It was a quiet day.

   This temple established in 1606 is commonly known as Nene's house. 
 Nene was a shogun's wife, who spent the latter part of her life there
founding the Buddhist temple  as a nun.

I really love returning to this temple, because I always sense the soft, gentle spirit of Nene there.
                                                                        Nene's room  and her garden,the east side,   November 6

                                                                Just one cherry tree stands alone in the garden, the south side.
                                       To my joy, the leaves had not fallen when I arrived there, but soon it will go into a time of rest.


                                                Please see this shabby looking tree dressed up in the delightful pink petals in spring. here

This is the red leaves in my local Temple in Nara city.
