Kyoto: Arashiyama Area Tenryu-ji Garden

On Friday morning, our second day in Kyoto, we ventured off to the Arashiyama area via bus. While Tokyo is very much a train city, public transport in Kyoto was more bus oriented. They do have two subway lines and a few tram/trains, but buses seem to be the preferred mode of getting around - other than bicycles that is. Kyoto is not all that expansive so you can do much of the city via bike. We took the bus to Kyoto station, transferred to another and headed to the outskirts of the city to the Arashiyama area. Then I took about a thousand pictures, a small percentage of which will follow.

The Tenryu-ji Zen Garden was one of the more pleasant landscapes I have encountered in my years of paying attention to such things. The season helped as certain trees had already started their autumn display of colors.

Nice lines.
