Nanzen-ji Temple, Kyoto
I’m taking a walk around Nanzen-ji, that is one of my favorite area.
Nanzen-ji (南禅寺 literally “south Zen temple”) is a Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto, established in 1291.
If I had been here a few weeks earlier, I could be able to see the beautiful flowers of Hagi (Japanese bush clover) in this garden.
But now is the season of orange osmanthus (金木犀 kinmokusei).
When passing through some buildings, there is a canal, called “Sosui”, that is a waterway constructed between Lake Biwa and Kyoto City.
The construction was begun in 1881, and finished in 1890.
It’s a real world, where I live, we live.
