Enkouji, Kyoto (園光寺)

I think most travel sites aren't very helpful, and I found an easy way to upload a few pictures per temple. Consider these a teaser to help you decide where to go. Also, they're all on the map.

Funny, I liked being here almost as much as Otagi Nenbutsuji. I know why too - there was no one else, only another solitary guy taking pictures and the gardener sweeping up leaves. The screens are very good, as are the paintings, as are the little exhibits of old letter type that the emperor let the monks use to print things. If you go, don't be like me. Don't use your auto-timer to take pictures of yourself posing in front of the main altar. It's really in bad taste.
