Nice! I can see in the map, that the wood reached the city. Is this the famous Kyoto of the emissions?
Hi MariPreg, Yes this small temple located in north-east side of the famous Kyoto. Kyoto was the capital of Japan since 794 through 1868.

Interesting... and is it by chance that Tokyo is the anagram of Kyoto?
Kyoto written in Japanese Kanji is 京都. 京都 (Kyo + To) means "Kyo no miyako" in Japanese, in English it means like "Capital where the Emperor is staying" or something. The Kanji 都 has the meaning of capital.
Tokyo written in Japanese Kanji is 東京. 東 means east. So, 東京 (Tou + Kyo) means "East Capital".

It's a Zen buddhist temple in Kyoto. It called Shisen-Do. A man called "Jozan Ishikawa" built the temple (with garden) in 1641.
