人力車

More than a hundred years ago, the jinrikisha was a popular form of transportation in Japan. Now it is more of a tourist attraction than anything else. Shortly before this one was parked on the side of this famous street (in front of Kodaiji) in Kyoto, it was transporting a couple of tourists dressed as Maiko or Geisha or Geiko.

One of my favorite places in the world during any season, Yanaka’s Tennoji can be an oasis like no other on a blue sky day in early April.

It has been six years since I’ve been to Kyoto. I hope to spend a day or two exploring the city again this summer. On the day I took this photo in 2007, the cherry blossoms weren’t quite ready yet, and the sky was overcast. I don’t know if I’ll have better luck in June (rainy season) or August (hot and humid peak), but I’m willing to give it a try.
