Bamboo trees and autumn leaves in Tenryu-ji (Kyoto)

Kyoto is the eternal capital of beauty in our country.

The gardens of Zen are elaborately composed of natural elements to aesthetically symbolize the spirituality of Zen and the tea ceremony, which puts the highest value on harmony, respect, purity and tranquility.

The evergreen Bamboo trees, the flaming autumn leaves just before their falling and the weathered plaster wall are portraying an elegant and memorable scene, which tells us about the eternal moment in the time passing away so swiftly.
