What better time to inaugurate my presence in the new AR Sunrises & Sunsets Group than my current trip to Kyoto City, Japan. The photo below (taken today - Sunday, November 13) looks out over the top of Ginkakuji Temple, a zen temple established in 1482.
Just to provide proof that this photo is actually real, below I sit in the doorway of one of the homes just outside "The Temple of the Silver Pavillion" (Ginkakuji Temple) considered "the creation of the soul of Japan". The famous Japanese Gardens are believed to have originated from this site.
This is an experience of a lifetime to say nothing of the ideas I've garnered for my own little rock gardens in Sandpoint, Idaho!
