This is a picture of the golden temple in Kyoto which is set in beautiful gardens. Picture postcard stuff.
The gardens are very colourful with Spring blooms and new green growth

There were beautiful pink and white dogwoods all around in Kyoto.

Next we visited an old part of the city called Gion. There is a small brook with many bridges crossing it. One of these bridges was used in the famous movie about the Geisha. Here are some random shots around that area.

I'll finish with a shrine just for the colour.

That was a fun visit with you - dogwoods, cherry blossoms, and azaleas - remind me of growing up in Maryland!!! Love you all - hey, did you meet Megan Poe when she visited your church with a girl named Ai? I think that is her name... we know her family - dear ol' friends and now supporters! Megan is an intern in Chiba at the Christian school there!
