Dear Shaded Viewers
I am in my home town Kyoto and enjoying the day dream with cherry blossoms at the moment.
I love the stone steps for crossing the river.
Some are in shape of turtle and bird.
Philosopher's Walk is so-named because of a philosophy professor Nishida Kitaro who used to walk for daily meditation in 1910-1920's.
It was my first time to visit here.
The temple is built by a slope of mountain on different levels.
Fushimiinari-taisha, the shrine became the object of imperial patronage in 965 when Kyoto was the capital of Japan.
The foxes who are regarded as the messengers.
What is unique in this shrine is the endless amount of Torii gates.
If you go there, you have to be ready for the long walk.
