April 3, 2015 - Kyoto Arashiyama district and evening visit at Yasaka Shrine

As predicted in forecast later part of day was rainy.
With umbrella in one hand and camera in other,
I have left JR Saga Arashiyama Station.
My target were Tenryuji Temple and adjacent famous Bamboo Groves.

Despite occasionally heavy rain, there were many visitors

After moving through groves, i used secondary gate
to enter garden surrounding Tenryuji Temple.

Temple grounds with pond and dry landscape garden

Last to visit in Arashiyama district was Togetsukyo Bridge.

Boat taking visitors on cruise upstream

After using Sagano line and Tozai metro, my last visit on this day
was at Gion and Yasaka Shrine
