Thank You by KmyGraphic  Byodoin Temple - Kyoto by AndySerrano   Byodoin Temple 2 - Kyoto by AndySerrano

For the fave on Byodoin Temple - Kyoto. This Buddhist temple in Kyoto, dates back to In 1052.  Basically, it's a 1000 year old structure.  I love the contrast. I rode two subway trains and took a short bus ride to get there.  Buddhism and Shintoism exist not only side-by-side in Japan, people see no real conflict between the religions.  It's a stark contrast whereas in the Christian/Judeo/Islamic traditions, they kill each other over minor differences in dogma.

Thank You by KmyGraphic for the fave on Gojnoto Pagoda at Night. This Pagoda on Miyajima Island stands 27 meters tall and is located on a hill next to the main Itsukushima Shrine. Constructed in 1407, the tower is dedicated to the Buddhist god of medicine. The island is not only sacred, it is considered a god.  No deaths or births are allowed on the island.

:icondsfav1plz::icondsfav2plz::icondsfav3plz:  The Eyes Have It. When I saw this woman's eyes and glasses, I did a double take and spun my head around 360 degrees.  Immediately, I asked her to pose.

.::Arigato::. by Blayzes for the fave on Itsukushima Tori and Shrinei.  This torii is the gateway to the island of Miajima, which not merely sacred, it is considered a god due to the beautiful aura it radiates.  Behind it, is Itsukushima Shrine which is a Shinto shrine on the island of Itsukushima (popularly known as Miyajima). The island itself is considered more than holy. It is considered to be a god. It is in the city of Hatsukaichi in Hiroshima Prefecture in Japan.  At high tide, the ocean water laps at the decks of the shrine.

:iconrudeboyskunkplz::iconrudeboyskunkplz2::iconrudeboyskunkplz3: on  Shinsen-en Garden Kyoto. I only found this place because I so almost all my touring while walking.  I pushed open a gate, wondering what's behind it, and found this.  Shinsen-en (lit. "Sacred Spring Garden") is the remains of a Heian Period garden just south of Nijo Castle in the west of Kyoto.

Shrine on the Philosopher's Walk. The foliage was a grand opportunity to focus solely on the traditional rooftops.  The cloudy day eliminated any glare from direct sunlight.  All the planets were aligned.

Thank you for your fave  onThis Philosopher's Walk Photo. Kyoto Philosopher's Walk is named because the influential 20th century Japanese philosopher and Kyoto University professor Nishida Kitaro used it for daily meditation. It passes a number of temples and shrines such as Hōnen-in, Ōtoyo Shrine, and Eikan-dō Zenrin-ji. It takes about 60 minutes to complete the walk, although many people spend more time visiting the sights along the way

Blue Thank You by KmyGraphic for the fave on Kenrokuen Japanese Garden. Kenrokuen Garden is a beautiful Japanese garden with an area of 11.4 hectares located on the heights of the central part of Kanazawa and next to Kanazawa Castle. The Maeda family, who ruled the Kaga Clan (the present Ishikawa and Toyama areas) in feudal times, maintained the garden from generation to generation. From its scale and beauty, it is regarded as one of the most beautiful feudal lords' gardens in Japan. Video www.youtube.com/watch?v=znl-Rq…
