You know those places that really become so special to you that it starts to become really easy to imagine you’re there again? Well, while exploring Kyoto I found one of those places, a beautiful Japanese Zen Garden. Just walking in the tatami felt so relaxing! The only thing that really spoiled the moment was this annoying kid running around all over the place and screaming a few times, but we’ve stayed long enough to be able to enjoy the place without him (I still can’t believe the parents said nothing! In such a gorgeous quiet place, he was really disturbing everyone)
So welcome to Shorenin Temple
Just by looking at the pictures again I already feel so relaxed. This place is so beautiful!
We’ve spent a lot of time just sitting down and appreciating the beauty of the gardens (and also waiting for the annoying kid to go away)
Unlike many touristic attractions in Kyoto, this was actually pretty quiet, so we’ve managed to really enjoy it
Could explore these corridors for hours, just love them! And walking bare-feet on the wood or the tatami is soooo good!
So if I need to imagine a place my heart feels in peace, this is it! I have to go back to this place one day. Seriously!
Do you have a magical place where you really feel happy and relaxed?
