Thank you for these lovely images. I was lucky enough to visit Kyoto, while living in Japan, but never had the opportunity for the solitary viewing your photos represent. Thanks so much!

Thank you very much for your kind comment and interest in my blog.

This Tsubo-niwa (courtyard) of Daitokuji Ryugenin Temple is called "Toutekiko" garden, and is the smallest Karesansui (dry landscape garden) style garden in Japan.

It symbolizes the Zen word which means that a single drop of water becomes a stream and eventually becomes the open sea.
