On the 22nd of November in 2014, I visited Enkoji Temple in Rakuhoku area of Kyoto to participate in 'Autumn Leaves at Dawn: Special Viewing'.
I wanted to see the splendid Garden of Jyu-gyu (ten oxen) from the Hojo building, but there was a lot more to see here. I took some time to stroll around this beautiful garden and enjoy some blissful moments.
I imagined the clear sound from the beautiful belfry sounding in the splendid garden, as the smiling faces of adorable jizo statues soothed and relaxed the minds of visitors.

I was born in and grew up in Tokushima prefecture, and have lived in many places since then: Nishinomiya, Kyoto, Nara, Mie, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Fukuoka and Fukui. I am currently living in Yokohama City. All the places I lived, all the places I visited, I have loved dearly. The historical places where people lived, loved, suffered, and fought - places where I can still hear their heartbeats - mesmerize me. I'd like to retrace the footsteps of the people who lived in Japan a long long time ago, and introduce to you what they left behind on this soil.
