Beautiful rain and cool weather this morning, we head to the northeast of Kyoto with the coat and the umbrella for the rest of our initiatory journey, a bucolic day in the village of Ohara. I am starting to be a bit overdosed with a crowd, cars and various noises. What calm, what silence, what tranquility …
The day begins with the visit of a small temple and its garden, which I did not know yet … And in the rain, the Japanese gardens are even more extraordinary. As we enter the room, we are seized … it is as if the garden entered the house. I just love it !
It continues with an unmissable step in Japan, an experience not to be missed under any circumstances … we relax in the onsen to live the unique ritual of the hot traditional bath … in the rain ! It’s great !
Then, go to the big Ohara temple, Sanzen-in. Superb ! With more, a multitude of small streams and waterfalls at every detour, in any direction where the eye is … Everything I love !
Finally, a little pearl, as I prefer them … where we will be seduced once again by matcha tea. Served according to ceremonial, the drink relaxes and resources. We then remember the sensations experienced in this incredible Japanese nature.
