Another day, another Shinkansen ride.
We've touched down in Kyoto.
We decided to check out the Kinkaku-ji Temple first, as it was one of our major MUST SEE things in KYOTO.
Though it was rather crowded, it was a serene walk around the Kinkaku-Ji Temple and grounds. The gardens were beautiful. If I had the talent, I could see myself sitting down during Ancient Japan, calligraphy brush in hand, paint pot at my side, a scroll on my knees, and painting the scene in front of me.
I thought it was so endearing to see this woman using her tablet to catch the image of this waterfall! She was literally trying to line-up this shot for 3 minutes! There was a back-up to the left of this image because people were letting her take photos. It's a nice gesture to allow someone to take their pictures without a drove of people interfering or photo-bombing.
I thought it would be nice to show the droves of people who were so considerate (below):
Something really beautiful, which I have been noticing recently, are all the flowers. Every petal and every bud seem to be glowing. Spring is such a wonderful time to experience.
