Domo Aregato, lovely Kyoto

A travel blog entry by vandna

... fought for all three unifiers of Japan (Nobunaga, Hideyoshi, Ieyasu - see Koyasan section). The walkway leading up to the temple is lined on both sides by deciduous trees, which in the autumn are dressed in vibrant, shocking red that I would have loved to have seen. Within the temple there are historical tea rooms where the patron, who was a student of the tea master Sen Rikyu (see Chanoyu), hosted guests. Along with Hosokawa's family is the alleged ...

... On new years day the windows in the front of the building are opened so Buddha can look out, which is quite cool. This temple had a great feel to it, with incense and candles burning it reignited our joy of temples (for a while anyway). However as cool as the Buddha and big wooden building were this was not our main reason for coming to Nara. Nara is a town over run with over 1,200 little deers called Sika Deer. The deer are very tame and were considered divine ...
