A few days ago, after a busy morning of errands, my husband suggested we drive to Yoshimine Temple to enjoy the fall colours. I jumped at the chance! The temple grounds cover a large area on the hills to the east of Kyoto and provide fantastic views of the Kyoto basin. Whenever we visit there is always something to enjoy: cherry blossoms in the spring, hydrangea in the early summer, and maple trees in the fall. This year, as usual, the fall colours were spectacular and we enjoyed a leisurely afternoon strolling through the temples grounds. Ah, fall in Japan, you put on quite a show!
This one of my two favorite trees at Yoshimine Temple. Behind it is the entrance gate to the temple grounds. (Actually, I took this standing in the parking lot.) By the way, if you scroll down the menu on the right to "Yoshimine Temple", you can see 2 more photographs of fall that I took at this location.
