It's easy to take good pictures when you have subjects like these. For some reason, when I arrived there the area was almost deserted. Very rare for Kyoto in Foliage season. Within two hours there were half a dozen tour buses pulling in every few minutes and huge tour groups complete with megaphone-toting leaders tromping all over the place. I was lucky to be able to spend 30 minutes meditating in 'this' garden, having it all to myself. First time to have such solitude in a setting like this in 20 years... Normally you can't even find a place to sit down!
