Yasaka-no-to Pagoda

this is a tall pagoda in Kyoto overlooking the streets of Gion area below... while most pagodas are part of compete temple complexes, Yasaka-no-to Pagoda stands more or less alone... the buildings of the Hokan-ji Temple, to which it once belonged, have been destroyed by fires, earthquakes and wars over the years....

welcome to my photo blog... while i may not be able to respond to everyone, i appreciate all your comments and critiques - they have all helped me to improve over the time that i have been a part of the Am3 community...


Please visit me on Flickr and 500px as well...
