Honenin Temple

Honenin Temple

Honenin Temple is one of the temples along Kyoto's Philosopher's walk.   The temple was established in 1681.    It is a refreshing and calm atmosphere...especially for someone who lives in one of the most populous cities in the world.   For me Kyoto was a break from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo and this was the perfect place for a nice relaxing walk. Speaking of Philospher's walk I didn't actually make the walk.   Perhaps I need to try that on my next trip to Kyoto...

Today’s configuration:  Leica M6 with various Leica lenses shot on Kodak Ektar film.

The temple is lines with paths, stone statues, ponds and a graveyard.   It is a secluded relaxing place to walk around...
