Kyoto slice #2

Slice #2 is temples, which there are an abundance of in Kyoto.

Kiyomizu-dera (清水寺) - I enjoyed walking along the back mountain paths much more than the main temple grounds where there are far too many people in May.

Koda-ji (高台寺) - there are lots of statues to spot

Kennin-ji (建仁寺) - I am so impressed by the garden of this particular sub-temple, thank you Kyotographie for bringing me here. I can only wish to sit on the porch on a lightly raining day, sipping tea. 

Ginkaku-ji (銀閣寺) - the moss is gorgeous, but alas too popular of a sight.

Honen-in (法然院) - my favourite spot along the philosopher's path

Tofuku-ji (東福寺) - tentatively my favourite temple grounds, I regretted not sitting here for longer.
