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.
