Very beautiful place! Anna

Greetings Anna, You are so right. The temple was beautiful. It can be very crowded, but we were there in the middle of the week so there were fewer people. We had more time and space to enjoy the buildings, colors, statues, fountains, springs, forest and people. A must see place when you go to Kyoto.

Greetings Nadia, Thanks for visiting Japan and commenting. The boy and I had a wonderful trip there. This was the largest temple we visited and it was very interesting. The main hall is on "stilts" and there is a very famous spring we drank from. I am glad you like it.
