Manshuin, Kyoto (曼殊院)

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.

I like to think of this as the 'forbidden temple'. Because you can't enter the secret areas? No, because there are signs every 50 centimeters saying "No photos!" "Don't touch!" "Don't open!"

What's that? You know me too well. You're absolutely right that I took more pictures here than at any other temple. In fact, it's nice. The gardens in particular, as seen from the verandas of the halls, are quite beautiful. Some of the treasure objects are also positively stunning.
