The Tower Gate (Ro Mon or 楼門)

I’ve said it before, and I’m sure I’ll say it again, but some things are best experienced alone, at a time when the tourists are gone. Such was the case on this evening in Kyoto. Other than myself, there was no one around except a high school couple (probably waiting for me to leave so they could make out). There were also crows, and they were the ultimate reason I left. Japanese crows don’t like me. I have been attacked by them before.

Moments after I took this photo, a thunder cracked so loud that when I glanced at the young couple, they looked at me as if to say, “the three of us aren’t long for this world.” I smiled and headed for my bike. That’s when the crows started doing their thing, and I split before the rain came down in buckets.
