The photos above and below are all from Kyomizu Dera, at two different seasons.
The change of season very much effect the details of Japanese lives. Especially the variations of “Art of Plates” at the restaurants were amazing, with flowery decorations in Spring, while there were autumn themed plates in end October.
Kyomizu Dera is one of the most famous temples of Kyoto, built on huge logs of wood without using any nail. Together with the forest around and the smoke of fumigants, it has a very mystic feeling. But the more attractive part of this temple is the road going to the temple, full of shops and on street eating facilities.
