We were expecting some rain tonight, but it did not come. No matter, we leave for East Kyoto and its moss gardens. As always, totally enchanting spaces …!
We start with a little pearl … All that I love!
We take a break in a small typical restaurant, then continue our walk in the beautiful, what do I say, sublime moss garden of Kokedera temple. The momiji reveal their fuchsia, orange, garnet pink ornaments … All the colors of Autumn coming. The ferns and mosses contrast with the barks of century-old cedars, with a strong odor of humus in the background with exhilarating properties. Everywhere, thick mosses encase trunks and rocks and make up soft plant sculptures … The perfect place for a mini-conference on the “moss cultivation”.
We end the day with a walk on the banks of the Hozu River, surrounded by the beautiful hills of Hirashiyama … I do not get tired!
