Nanzen-ji 南禅寺 by M_Strasser
Via Flickr:
Nanzen-ji (南禅寺 Nanzen-ji), or Zuiryusan Nanzen-ji, formerly Zenrin-ji (禅林寺 Zenrin-ji), is a Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto, Japan. Emperor Kameyama established it in 1291 on the site of his previous detached palace. It is also the headquarters of the Nanzen-ji branch of Rinzai Zen. The precincts of Nanzen-ji are a nationally designated Historic Site and the Hōjō gardens a Place of Scenic Beauty. (Wikipedia) As part of the temple ground, there is a little garden. If I remember correctly, you had to pay an entrance fee. I really liked this garden.

I dag nød vi det skønne vejr (25 grader og masser af sol) ved at gå en tur langs “Philosophers Path” i Kyoto! Det er en hyggelig lille sti der ligger mellem Ginkaku-ji og Nanzen-ji (to templer). Når man går ad stien, går man langs en å, en masse kirsebærtræer og små butikker og boder langs vejen. 🌸

Der er en rigtig hyggelig gåtur også selvom det var varmt… og man nemt kunne blive en smule solskoldet… Ups. ☀️
