Tenryuji Zen Temple - Arashiyama

Tenryuji is another Zen temple in the Kyoto region. This one is a World Heritage site with beautiful gardens and ponds full of huge, like they could take your arm off sized, carp - orange, red, black and white ones. The pink plum blossoms are particularly pretty. We've been getting plum blossoms twigs as garnish on some of the dishes we've been eating. It's a bit early for the cherry blossom season. The temperature has reason considerably the last couple of days. When we arrived in Tokyo we were getting maximums of 3 and 5 degrees. Since we've been in Kyoto the max temp has jumped to between 14 and 20 degrees C. T-shirt weather.
