Shinsen-En

Wandering around in the Nijo Castle area, roughly in the center of Kyoto, we stumbled upon this beautiful little shrine with water, a bridge and a boat. According to the signage, this was a favorite spot of Emperor Kanmu who originally set up Kyoto in the 9th century. This kind of ancient history pops up everywhere in Kyoto, that's one of it's most seductive features.
