For the first time in a while, I visited Ryoanji (龍安寺) temple.

The temple with its old history since the Muromachi (室町) period, is world-wide famous for its rock garden. Interestingly, there is no record about the creation of the garden, such as by whom, how nor when i...

It's already September, yet unusually hot. Here in Kyoto, everybody including me is somewhat fed up with this severe hot and humid weather. However, the other day, I happened to find a sign of autumn in town.

It's been the season of Tsuyu (梅雨, rainy season) in Japan.  Along with Hydrangeas (紫陽花), the symbolic flower of this season is Kikyo (桔梗, ballon flower). Here in the yard of Tentokuin (天得院) temple, Kikyo flowers are quietly blooming. 

Tentokuin temple is one o...

The other day, I was walking alone around JR Enmachi (円町) station, and found a nice Sushi (寿司) restaurant "Masuda". I had a lunch plate of Nigiri Sushi (にぎり寿司, hand shaped sushi), Hosomaki (細巻, narrow rolled sushi) and half sized Udon (うどん) noddle. It was delicious and...

Here comes the season of fresh greenery. Did you take some trip during the golden week (early May holiday season in Japan)? I visited Kenninji (建仁寺) temple during the holidays.

The temple was established in 1202 by Eisai Zenji (栄西禅師), and is very famous for its asset of...
