Honen-in Temple Kyoto

For translation please use the Google Translate Button on my site.

This is my first contribution to the Thursday Doors Challenge. Thank you Dan, for hosting this wonderful challenge. In my archives I hardly found any door pictures. But I am going to look out for doors, from now on !

While I was traveling through Japan I visited many temples, in Kyoto perhaps too many …
Close to the Philosopher’s Path in Kyoto I looked at Eikando Temple, beautiful and but also very crowded. On a short detour I then discovered nearby Honen-in Temple that was visited by only few people. The temple area was much smaller and the buildings could not be entered but I really liked the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere and aesthetic design of the temple park .

Always looking forward to your feedback

  1. I´ve worked with Japanese companies and people, even tried learning their language. But I haven´t had the chance to visit Japan but I do have many friends living and working there.I do respects lots of their beliefs and way of lifestyle. Temples are such an enigmatic sight, and I do dreamt of walking into these Temples and yes, enjoy some much needed „Zen“.

  2. Dan’s right! Photographic is not only addictive, it’s infectious. Friends send me door photos, and friends I’m with joggle my elbow and point and say, „Aren’t you going to take a picture of that door?“ Welcome to the fun!

  3. The temple doors are beautiful, as are your other photos. Thanks for joining us at Thursday Doors. I think you might find photographing doors to be somewhat addictive. I look forward to future posts.
