And I went to Tofukuji temple in Kyoto.
It is famous for Autumn leaves.
Those are very beautiful.
It has 25 sub temples.
Tentokuin, which I posted yesterday, is one of them.
You can go there from Tofukuji station of the Keihan or JR train.
If you are in Japan in autumn, it is good to visit there.
Though it will be crowded with tourists.
Tentokuin in Kyoto is famous for its Platycodon grandiflorum flowers.
The garden is opened to the public only when they are blooming.
This year (2017) it is from June 25 to July 10.
Today I visited there.
It was little bit early.
The maccha tea and a sweet which is shaped like the Platycodon grandiflorum were both good.
My husbands friend opened a pizza place.
The name is Pizzeria Q.
It is located on Nishioji street just south of Oike street.
Today I went there.
The building is a renovated old machiya.
The pizza was very good.
Upstairs they have a 14 parsons guest house, named Goro.
The other day I went a restaurant called ” Musubino”.
It is a Kyoto Machiya style restaurant which is in a renovated 150 year old house.
They use fresh vegetables and meat from their own town Kyoto.
It was delicious.
The place is about 5 minutes from Fushimi Momoyama station on the Keihan train.
In spring in Japan many cherry blossom flavored sweets are leased.
The famous Kyoto confectionary called Namayatsuhashi does a special cherry blossom treat too.
This is Yuba (bean-curd skin) on top of soba (buckwheat).
This is the Golden Pavilion in Kyoto.
