Sanjusangendo Garden

Posted by
Darkelf Photography (Perth, Australia) on 29 April 2014 in Landscape & Rural.


a quick move from a Japanese garden in Tasmania to the real thing - beautiful garden near the Sanjusagendo Temple in Kyoto with the wonderful cherry blossoms in full bloom... this year i got to experience Japan for the very first time and i enjoyed it thoroughly, especially being there during the blossom season!

this temple has a lot more interest than just the garden - inside there are one thousand life-size statues of the Thousand Armed Kannon which stand on both the right and left sides of the main statue... there are also statues of 28 guardian deities... it is quite a sight, however, no photography was allowed inside so i settled for the photos of the garden and surrounds...

Canon EOS 5D Mark II 1/80 second F/11.0 ISO 200 28 mm
