Kyoto is a Japanese tourist destination during this time of year, and it was buzzing with visitors angling for the perfect fall scene views and photos. Near our apartment was one of the ...

      Hirooka-san showed us a small local Buddhist temple, where a priest that serves the neighbourhood works.

      The Golden Pavilion itself is, in a word, incredible. The immaculately maintained gold of the pavilion walls reflect off the mirror pond beneath it, and contrast so dramatically with the deep green of the forest behind it .
      The rest of the Kinkaku-ji grounds are largely forgettable. Immaculately manicured, but honestly not ...
