Checking Out The View of Kyoto
Shogunzuka Overlook (将軍塚), Kyoto Japan

We had a brief heavy rain this afternoon a couple of hours before sunset, and so with the clearing air I thought to make a visit to check out the views from the Shogunzuka Overlook, which I haven't been to in a while. (However, the nearby photos link under any photo brings you to the bazillion photos I've posted from up here over the years.)

今日集中豪雨の後、将軍塚からの景色を見に行きました。

A Bit Dynamic

It reminded me of one of the first times I posted photos from up here seven years ago, also after a storm. Photos from that day also appeared on last year's Views of Kyoto From Shogunzuka Over The Years.

The End

Most of the clouds were gone a few minutes later, leaving nothing for the setting sun to light up, so that was that.
