The left three are the photos of *blind stones*(see the linked text), and the right half is about *ushinotoki-mairi*, cursing the rival of romance. D:
Has anyone here tried the blind stones in Kyoto? :)
aww look! :D
This is not a kindergarten bus, but it’s for the tourists!
look what I did today! the sky is getting dark:)
I wanted to visit Yakushiji temple because I heard they are going to close the temple this fall to repair and renew.
And IT WILL NOT BE FINISHED UNTIL 2030! D:
I don’t know much about temples or architecture in other countries, but Japanese temples are built without any nails. Of course it requires very special technique to meet every single details only by shaving the wooden materials and meet them to each other.
So, some parts of the temples are taken apart, taken down to be repaired and reinforced, and then again assembled as they used to be.
No wonder it takes time to finish everything.
Your blogs are magnificent. I wish I could visit Japan someday and your blog makes me feel like I do visit it a little bit once in a while now.
Thank you for your compliment:)
Oh yes, I hope you feel somewhat familiar with the general sights of Japanese cities when you actually visit here sometime in the future! It’s nice, isn’t it?:D
Well, from my experience, it seems many foreign tourists wonder why we have few public dust bins on the street. If you think it inconvenient while you are visiting Japan, just remember to try convenience stores. They have dust bins, often outside the shop:)
