Taihei-kaku (2016) by jpellgen
Via Flickr:
The Taihei-kaku is a hashi-dono (covered bridge) in the garden of Heian Jingu. It was build in 1912 and moved here from the Imperial Palace (Kyoto Gosho). Heian Jingu is actually a more modern shrine–built in 1895 for the 1100th anniversary of Heian-kyo (the former capital of Japan was Kyoto, and the word “Heian” refers to this time period and style). The grounds of Heian Jingu are actually a replica of the Imperial Palace. It also boasts the largest torii (Shinto gate) in Japan. You may even be familiar with this location as the main setting for the film Onmyoji, and a focal location in Big Bird in Japan. Heian Jingu. Sakyo-ku, Kyoto.

Saturday 12th August 2017. 18:00 Kurashiki Japan.

We had a hotel booked in central Kurashiki next to the train station. It took us about 40 minutes to drive here from Uno Port. We had booked our hotel super last minute and with it being the holidays this was the cheapest/closest place we could find. I was excited to stay in Kurashiki, the centre looks so beautiful, great place to take photos from looking at google lol.

We got to our hotel around 15:30/16:00 and had a good hour n a half chill. We freshened up and headed south to Kojimakayou to hopefully catch a sunset. We found a nice harbour with a port like structure made entirely out of rocks and boulders. It was a really cloudy sunset but still pretty cool regardless. Nomu went crabbing while I watched from afar. He also dropped my brand new sunglasses down one of the gaps on the port harbour. I felt bad because he actually bought me them sunglasses before I went back to England and now they’re lost at sea forever haha. We were both in shock but so funny in hindsight. We’re gonna go halves on a new pair this weekend lol.

Via Flickr:
Katsura Imperial Villa 桂離宮, Nishikyō-ku 西京区, Kyoto built by Prince Hachijō Toshihito 智仁 (1579–1629). He wrote “Far away, in the country village of Katsura, the reflection of the moon upon the water is clear and tranquil.” Katsura became influential to modernist architects including Le Corbusier, Walter Gropius, and New Wave Australian Architects Philip Cox, Peter Muller, and Neville Gruzman who visited in the late 1950s and 1960s.
