Hermosawave Picture of the Day

Wednesday, May 20, 2020


View of the rock garden at Shoden-ji Temple, in the very northern part of Kyoto.

Notice that the foliage behind the garden has been designed to frame Mt. Hiei in the distance. This is an example of “borrowed scenery” used in Japanese gardens.

It is said that David Bowie used to frequent this temple.

Taken in Kyoto, Japan

Zoom in for more detail.
