Not a lot of commentary today, just pictures.
This is the big cherry tree at the temple near Gion (Maruyama park)
a view in Maruyama park
A white tree in Maruyama park
walking south from the park towards a lot of temples (Possibly Chorakuji?)
one of the buildings in the temple area
I was playing with the zoom in feature on the camera today...
Just a typical street view in Kyoto.
And another one.
This is the serpent sculpture at Kodaiji
its body is made of wood and the spines are made of roof tiles
this is its head
It winds through the "sea"
here is a movie of the serpent sculpture
More views in Kodaiji (古代寺)
Beautiful red blossoms on this tree
My favorite building at Kodaiji; the paint colors are amazing
Trying to get an artistic view of the pagoda and blossoms through the bamboo
walking home along the Kamo river (鴨川); this is the view from the Sanjo bridge near Starbucks.
The flowers are beautiful
There is more than just cherry blossoms; these yellow folks are coming out too.
A view looking east along the canal near Marutamachi (丸太町)
The path walking home north along the river.
