Japan 09 - Along the philosophy path & Honen-in Temple

The beginning of the walk at Ginkakuji-michi. We followed the guide provided by Japan National Tourism Organization.

There are lots of stores (food & gifts) at the starting point of the walk. I got myself a yummy matcha-pie (green-tea pie) at this place :D

This is the nice lady who was tending the matcha-pie shop, she was posing for me after i asked her permission for photo, but i told her to 'continue working' instead so i could get more 'natural' shots XD

And there are always alternatives to walking..

Moss garden in Honen-in temple

They can grow anywhere!
Tiny torii such as this were observed to be placed outside the house. Any idea about their significant?
