Temple gardiners, Arashiyama, Kyoto.

The best Buddha ever, Arashiyama, Kyoto. This is my number one favourite photo- how can you not like that smile!

Photogenic Buddha 's, Arashiyama, Kyoto.

Boats on the river, Arashiyama, Kyoto.

Arashiyama Bamboo Forest, Kyoto. As pictured in Lonely Planet etc. What you don't see are the tourists!

About a month ago I returned from a trip to Japan. Here are a few photos from Kyoto, just a few mind you- I took well over a thousand pictures all up. Kyoto is definately a temple-tourist place- lots and lots of people looking around, and I don't think that I got to understand the place until about my last day there. And it was then that I started to miss it, especially when travelling back to Tokyo. Tokyo of course has a charm of its own, but that will be another post, devoted to neon lights, kawaii cute and shopping.
