Kyoto revisited 3

Getting ready for Gion

The way to Ryoanji

The mini version

And the real thing.

Islands in a pebble sea

What is it?  Clouds?  Sea?  Islands?  Or just rocks…

On the way out

Pond view

Next place!

With thousands of torii gates – Fushi Inari shrine

Sanjusangen-do temple – with the thousand statues with forty thousand arms.  no photos allowed inside though.

And part of the grounds

Gion!  Floats getting ready for the big day

And a close up shot.

No time to stay for Gion though 😦 So we didn’t get to see the parade in action.  Maybe next time!
