Stories from Japan

I took these images near the end of our Kyoto part of the trip. 
The first in Arashiyama, a must if you visit Kyoto, beautiful gardens, rivers and forests.

This photo now has over 43 million views on Google+ as at 12/05/2016.

The second a little gem I found while cruising around Kyoto on a bicycle. I recommend riding around as the best way to see Kyoto. It relatively flat and traffic is very accommodating to cyclists.
I came across this Kennin-ji temple and found a small event on at the time. Ikebana, flower arrangements that will amaze you, but at the centre of it all was this amazing rock garden.
