This morning, the good weather is also at the rendezvous, and we leave towards the East of Kyoto to discover two beautiful little known gardens, the former, designed by the famous garden master Jihei Ogawa (1860-1933) and the other, more contemporary, designed by his son.
Then we leave for lunch in a very old restaurant, offering fine zen vegetarian cuisine, typical menu of Buddhist monks.
After this delicious lunch, we head to the huge Kennin-ji temple and its gardens …
… then to the famous garden of Kodai-ji temple …
… to end the afternoon in this picturesque neighborhood of Gion and its charming little streets, typical of the city of Kyoto, with a passage to the tea room with a koi basin of great price. We enjoy a matcha ice cream accompanied by mashed red beans and a roasted tea. I just love it !
