Kyoto was the former capital of Japan and is home to hundreds of Buddhist temples. We visited many over the few days we were there.
Don't walk here!
As we walked through the temples and gardens we noticed there were no leaves on the pathway or the floor of the garden. Workers came through and picked up all the leaves and "cleaned" the moss of dead pieces. We toured the areas in October so I imagine this is their busy season!
Moss covering the grounds
All these temples made us hungry! Time for mandarin orange sherbet with small candies on top and cucumbers.
