Here’s some more photos of Kyoto. I have split the pictures up into several entries. You can see more photos from Kyoto and other cities in the Japan category, and also read about the trip in the zine I wrote. Kyoto is famous for its cherry blossom, but sadly we were there a couple of weeks earlier than it comes out in full bloom. You did see the odd bud here and there though.
Instead of garden gnomes, people in Japan have tanuki figures. I didn’t see any wild racoon dogs.
Citrus growing in a local shrine. There is a separate entry for my shrine and temple photos.
The hotel reflected in the water of the garden. I won five nights at the Hyatt as part of my prize. I certainly can’t afford to stay at that kind of hotel normally.
Someone arranged these pine cones in the hotel garden.
A graveyard near the hotel.
A street stall of bonsai.
A miniature moss garden. You can see my photos of the full-sized thing here.
A sakura bonsai garden.
