From Hiroshima to Kyoto, back on the shinkansen. I've been to Kyoto several times and there is always more to see; even revisiting past places offers something new.
Today though, one place I've not yet been but has been on my must-see list for years, Fushimi Temple, the temple grounds known for its hundreds of temple gates, lines up one after another, like tunnels of tangerine.
I had in my mind it was some distance from the city centre, but turned out it is just a couple of train stops away.
Lots of people, as always, on this fine day, but it didn't disappoint. Most interesting.

Later in the afternoon, I took a bit a of stroll around the back of the hotel, to Higashi Honganji, one of the main temple in Kyoto (and with distant connections of sorts to my university, I recall).
Interesting little back streets too. It is always worth going one street back from the main street in any city, you just never know what you'll find.
