All about a beautiful path in Kyoto with cherry trees along canal like a stream from Lake Biwa. You can enjoy Japanese great landscape when walking on the path called "Philosopher's Walk".

Leaves along the path Nov 19th

I took it around 8 o'clock this morning. Leaves looked fresher than usual thanks to last night rain.

Some are still blue green and others are yellow and red. They are like a brocaded cloth.

I guess the nubmer of green leaves is larger than that of yellow and red ones today as a whole along the path.

Along the path Nov 18th
This is how my favorite path, the philosopher's walk looks like.
Red and yellow leaves of Sakura are almost over.
I miss them a lot.

We see few Japanese maple trees around this point.

Camellia sasanqua at Honen-in temple Nov 18th

I've always been unable to tell Camellia from sasanqua along the path, and I know why now!

I looked up the word "sasanqua", the pink flower in the photo in my dictionary and it says "Camellia sasanqua".
It means that they are almost the same and at least Western world don't have the distinction between these two.

Japanese maple trees are now at their best at Honen in temple.
I saw the elderly going up the street to Honen-in temple in the early morning. It seemed to me that they became breathless while going up.
Honen in opens its gate at the same time of sun rise, so I insist on visiting Honenin first of all before all other temples in Kyoto open. If I were you, I would be in Honenin around 7 o'clock. I bet you can feel silence and get some pure air into your body from holy place.

Eikando temple Nov 18th

It is how the entrance of Eikando temple looks like this morning.
We had rain after noon.

I think the best season for Eikando's Japanese maple tree would be this week.
When leaves start falling, they won't look beautiful compared to last year. Several typhoons hurt leaves and defoliated quite a few.
I feel the number of leaves of each tree looks two thirds.
