Kyoto Autumn 2013 : Shin-nyo-do


From Nanzenji, our next destination was supposed to be Kyoto Gyoen which is more or less an hour walk from Nanzenji but somehow our destination changed again which was actually
a much better location. The place was called Shin-nyo-do but we like to call it Mr.K’s special place since he was the one who suggested and guided us there.

This was probably my favorite place of the day. The colors where just beautiful. There was also a 3 or 4 story pagoda which made a really nice backdrop to the place. There was a fee if you enter the special section inside the main hall but exploring the ground is totally free.

We stayed here a little bit longer and just enjoy the peacefulness and the beauty while resting our very tired feet.

    Truly beautiful! I think Autumn is the best season in Japan even if it is a bit cold!

      I agree. Spring is also very beautiful.
