it has been a bit cold and raining. Very wet. Of course I decided to travel to north from central Kyoto. There is a small zen temple called “Shisendo” and this place is famous for its garden. There are 2 rooms you can sit or meditate facing well-maintained and cared garden. I sat there for about 30 minutes just to enjoy the garden, hear birds, feel the breeze. Just to be. I am just proud to be Japanese especially today.
13.5miles. I walked 13.5 miles today. My feet and legs are a bit sore but I’m planning to walk around the city today again. This is my friends’ first time to visit Kyoto and they wanted to visit Rokuonji (Kinkakji). Not my favorite but yet still impressive. My highlight of my the day was to visit Ryoanji zen Templar for the 4th time. This is my another chapter of my life started. I’m forever grateful for that. This is cherry blossom at Ryoanji. It’s just before 7 in the morning. Let’s see what’s waiting for me to explore in this amazing city.
4.9.2015 Kyoto vacation started. The first stop is Honolulu, HI. Waiting for my flight to Kansai Airport. I am sitting under the shade and enjoying the sun and lovely Hawaiian breeze. Not a bad start at all 🙂
