Having read a friends post on some rather lovely Japanese pottery, I went in search of some photos of a trip to Japan a few years back. I loved Japan, it was unlike anywhere else I had every been in almost every respect. Sadly my camera did not like it, maybe it was a bit embarrassed about not being state of the art and only 3 of the photos are presentable.
The main part of the trip was in Kobe, but we had a chance to spend a few days in Kyoto visiting all the temples. On one day we drove out to visit a temple outside the city and it was so calm with giant tres, ferns and moss covered stones
At the top there was a lovely little fountain.
This was where all the buildings were, with a very minamalist gravel garden.
I wish I had more photos to share, I guess I am just going to have to return to take some.
