seen on the streets of Kyoto

while taking a walk in search of one thing, many more sights are revealed!

my love of Kyoto continues, the houses are cute, a game of hide-and-seek, ginko leaves bright and yellow on grey tile temple roof.

 I eventually ended up having lunch downtown at a favourite little sushi place.

And...Mibu Dera is the headquarters of the Risshu sect of Buddhism, and was built in 991 C.E. It is known for its Mibu kyogen plays that are held every April. It is best known for its connection to theshinsen-gumi (a samurai group that attempted to overthrow the government and is worshipped in modern Japan).
