    At the matchiya house

    April 6, 2018 in Japan ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

    After a long, tiring, and frequently confusing journey - which almost failed at the last step when the taxi driver from the station took us to entirely the wrong part of the city - we have finally arrived at our little house in Kyoto.

    We went out to see the spring night illuminations at the local temple, and are now taking turns to bathe, and to look out at the rain falling in the tiny garden.

    If you are wondering what is in the little chest of drawers in the tokonoma (scroll alcove), it's an offering to modern idols - a 4-socket plug adaptor, and a USB charger.

    מקדש טוג'י

    August 12, 2015 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    במקדש טוג'י נמצאת הפגודה הגבוהה ביותר ביפן. רק 5 קומות אבל בגובה 57 מטר.

    הפסלים במקדש נורא נורא יפים ואפשר למצוא בו את הבודהה המרפא - הבודהה היחידי שמחזיק משהו ביד (תרופות...)

    מקום שממש אסור לפספס.
