If there is a city you can absolutely fall in love with in #Japan (at least in my opinion), is #Kyoto. Walking around the Higashiyama District means finding wonder after wonder. This picture is from the Kodaiji temple, established in 1606 in memory of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, one of Japan's greatest historical figures, by his wife.
The amazing buildings are surrounded by beautiful Zen gardens, one of them a rock garden consisting of a large field of raked gravel meant to represent the vast ocean. The other garden, the one that appears at the picture, is an impressive tsukiyama style garden featuring a pond, man made hills, decorative rocks and beautiful pine and maple trees, the latter of which turn brilliant shades of red and orange during the autumn color season.
The gardens also have a bamboo grove. Just and simply amazing to visit. And it is next to the famous Kiyomizudera temple.
