Kyoto Tenryu-ji Temple in Spring

Delicate and graceful weeping cherry trees

By Tomoko Kamishima    - 1 min read

The weeping cherry trees of Tenryu-ji Temple are delicate and graceful. Thousands of strings of rose-colored gems hang down in contrast with the blue sky. When the gentle breeze sways the flowers tenderly, down comes a drizzle of falling cherry blossoms. Just stunning! Autumn in Tenryu-ji Temple is also nice and powerful. I took some photos from the same angle both in spring and autumn. So, please enjoy these photos from these two fantastic seasons in Kyoto (see autumn photos here).

Japan is a small island nation, but we have a huge number of surprising things to discover here. Many of these delights can be found when you step off the main street onto small side paths. I really enjoy studying about and researching various aspects of traditional Japanese culture, and then sharing this information with visitors to Japan. I hope you will enjoy it, too! ARTICLE INDEX & PHOTOS:  An index of most of my Japan Travel articles can be found at the entry page of my blog, and my photos are shown here.  日本はとても小さな国ですが、大通りから一本小道に入ればたくさんの発見があります。日本人が積み重ねてきた歴史を学びながら、古い建物や庭を訪ね、物語の舞台となった景色を眺めて、皆様といっしょに日本文化の奥深さを探求していきたいと思います。
