Fall colors in Kyoto

Recently my friend Aya-san sent me some pictures of the gardens at Renge-ji, a small temple in Kyoto, well known for its fall colors, and at Ruriko-in. The latter is a hidden jewel, as you can only visit it for a couple of weeks in November. In fact it was closed to the public for a while, to protect the fragile gardens and buildings.

I had trouble choosing among Aya-san's many wonderful pictures! I hope you have enjoyed this small sample.

Very beautiful indeed. Kyoto in autumn is beautiful almost everywhere you go.
Glad you have such a nice friend who's sending you photos. :)
