龍池山大雲院 Ryuchizandaiunin

りゅうちざんだいうんいん hiyoke tenmangu shrine

I stumbled on this place quite by accident while walking from Maruyama Koen (円山公園) into the Gion District in Kyoto. This shrine is actually quite close to the Gion Temple (祇園寺). I found 龍池山大雲院 to be marvelously peaceful, with striking wood and marble.

Tomorrow I’ll show you a close up of the marble Buddha you can see lying down in the distance in this picture from the gate.
