moss was growing everywhere; on both living and dead trees, on rocks, on cement, on the walkways, it was incredible. i took so many photos, it was hard to narrow it down to the few i'm posting.
the temple complex itself was really nice, and in lovely condition. the way they limit the amount of people who can come at once, preserves the tranquility and makes taking photos a breeze; i had so few photos that had people in them.
there were two trees growing together, which i think they marry, and tie a cord around to show this. it was kawaii.
i love this place, i hope to come back to it one day. if you're in kyoto, this haven of peace is absolute bliss.
