On 15th, I've been to Yamaguchi-city where First Christmas was held in Japan in 1552. Francisco de Xavier(1506-1552) who was the first missionary of Christianity to Japan performed missionary work in Yamaguchi-pref. in 1551. I DO hope you had or having a wonderful blessed Christmas Eve.
Our capital city is referred as western Kyoto. Let me skip the long explanation about two places I took pictures with night scene.
*Rurikoji-Temple （瑠璃光寺） five-story pagodas*
You can read about this temple from my former post here; and this page also has the night scene. I tried the reflection shot this time.
Here is the link you can read more detail with pictures.
I've posted about this temple with 2 pages→ this link.
|Gate and Garden. The light was blue but NOT sure why SO bluish (^^;)|
About 500 years ago, the land lord at that time asked Sesshu, who was the monk and also the painter of ink paint, to construct the garden.
Linking this post to "Good Fences", and "Weekend Reflections"
I saw Theresa started linking and hurried to write this post after Christmas Eve dinner :-) I know how unfaithful of me not to return to your kind visits... Well, finally my personal thing taking up my time got settled and I think I can go back to more relaxed situation.
