Our next destination was Okazaki Park, which according to google map will take about an hour walk from where we currently are.
On our way to the park we passed by another temple and somebody from the group noticed a toilet and some really red maple trees on the side, the next thing I knew everybody was walking towards the temple.
It was called Chisaku-in, and I was glad we took a short detour there.
I really love how sun shone the leaves.
I saw this leaf fall on the green grass and I could not stop myself to take a picture of it. The contrast looked really nice, don’t you think so?
Another attempt on maple close-up 🙂
No. These leaves where still attached to the tree but it did have a great contrast with the grass.
Another one with the sunshine on it. I love its natural colors.
Chishaku-in. We did not go in though. I guess everybody was like “yeah, just another temple”. Everybody was actually more interested in the Ginko Tree infront of it, which unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of.
In the end we decided not to proceed to Okazaki Park and instead had our lunch at Maruyama Park just in the back of Yasaka Shrine or famously known as Gion Shrine.
