A special thanks to Hiki-chan who suggested visiting Tofukiji Temple while in Kyoto. To be honest, I thought I'd be okay if I didn't see any temples this time in Kyoto, having visited most of them a few times before, but this temple was so beautiful and relaxing, I'm so happy I could experience it. It was a nice break too, from the 1000 of cafes I wanted to visit!

You can see how beautiful Tofukuji looks in Autumn here. (While you listen you might also like to break out into your best Rhumba like dramatic latin dancesport dance like I may, or may not have).

Happy weekend Sandwiches!

  6. Tofukiji still holds number one position as housing my favourite zen garden of Japan. I have a photo almost identical to that side-on view of the spiky rocks. Your photo took me straight back to those smooth wooden steps and that blissful feeling of soaking in every sandy line. Thank you muchly!

  8. That checkerboard pattern with grass and concrete (stones?) is amazing. I really feel calm even viewing the photos - lovely.
