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.
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.
at the entrance of the main hall
Have a wonderful day!
