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
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!
