  • Description: Moss Garden at Saihoji Temple, one of the few temples in Kyoto where visitors must request an invitation by mail weeks in advance before their visit. Visitors are required to participate in chanting and writing wishes before visiting the famous gardens. In this way, the monks are able to maintain the temple and garden and prevent mass tourism from destroying the tranquility of the moss garden.

    I like this image. Nice composition that leades you up the river. Nice color but not to oversaturated. Crisp and clear. Nice job.
