Dipping into my archives to last November (of “A Long But Photogenic November in Kyoto” distinction), here are a couple of photos from the Honen'in Temple (法然院) in north-eastern Kyoto. It's a simple temple with some nice garden features, including its famous entry gateway seen above (and here).

The path is flanked by two meticulously-groomed piles of sand.
