Go to Nara Park from Byodo-in Temple. When the sun went down, when I got off the Kasuga Taisha Omotesando bus stop, this scenery was waiting for me. The deer seems to be silently searching for food without coming here.
Temples and shrines are good, but the natural scenery is soothing. It was nice to meet the unexpected scenery at the bus stop that I got off by chance.
Byodo-in Temple was designated as a World Heritage Site and Cultural Heritage Site in 1994, and is a standard spot for sightseeing in Kyoto. There are many foreigners and group tourists such as school trips, and the impression is that it is always crowded, so it is difficult to take pictures that are convincing because people are reflected in it, and it takes a long time to see the inside of the Phoenix Hall. It is also a high spot.
This time it was a visit that also served as a job, but due to the epidemic, it was a quiet and solemn precinct. Although it was barely enough time, I was able to see the inside of the Phoenix Hall for the first time.
The main hall and the Amida Nyorai statue were built during the Heian period. It is a precious and wonderful building and work of art that has been in existence for more than 1000 years. I was able to experience the wonderfulness of the work of my predecessor up close.
2 minutes walk from Enkoji Temple. I was also able to meet the picture frame garden at Shisen-do.
The dry landscape garden at the end of the porch of the porch is a picture frame garden. There is a feeling of openness, and you can experience a picture that is different from Enkoji Temple. You can also enjoy the picture frame garden from a different angle from the paradise nest during the continuation of Shisen.
You can proceed to the strolling garden from the porch of the paradise nest. Wear sandals on the porch and explore the small gardens. It echoes in the garden and is said to have been made for the first time here in Shisen-do.
Harmony between nature and buildings … Recently, I often shoot buildings, and I was looking for such a subject.
The autumn leaves season is still ahead, but the Ten Bulls Garden at Enkoji Temple, where bright greenery like fresh green spreads, is a quaint landscape that is different from the autumn leaves season. The Ten Bulls Garden seen through the porch of the main hall has a world view like a painting that fits in the frame. Since it was off-peak, I took this superb view all by myself. I experienced a luxurious time.
