Another Fall Scene and Japanese Rice Cracker;

        Two places with Autumn atmosphere before winter come close;

  * '来迎寺. Raikouji-temple'  from a few days ago*  
On our way back from visiting my husband's band group member, we happened to pass by this temple. I loved seeing the long stairs at the gate leading to the inside. Fall Foliage must have been wonderful if it was a bit earlier. The last picture is from the inside towards the entrance.



* 'もち吉. Mochikichi'  Rice Cracker Store *
We bought some souvenirs at this store the other day. I loved seeing the decoration and the staff kindly allowed me to take pictures. 
These rice crackers are Japanese favorite snack which goes very well with green tea♪
Ones with sea weed is really delicious

Linking this post to, "MosaicMonday", "Our World Tuesday", 


Thank you SO much for your kind visits. And to my friends in America, I DO hope you'll have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day with loved ones;

The Japanese Garden where you stopped is so elegant -- everything just perfect.

I've seen Rice crackers for sale here and I am going to try them. They look delicious.

Hi Miyako, I remember eating the rice crackers while we were in Japan, I enjoyed them.
They are nice photos of the temple gate and stairway with all the autumn foliage. I imagine it would have been quite spectacular with all the leaves in their autumn colours.
Nice to see you back.

Your art work is so lovely, dearest Miyako! The temple garden and red fall color are so beautiful, what a pretty place to walk. I like to eat rice crackers since I can't eat wheat and am gluten intolerant. They look very delicious. I like the little sheep too and the shop displays. Hugs from the PNW, I will probably have more than one Thanksgiving dinner with different relatives.

Beautiful country and tasty snacks. We have a language school in our small town on the BC coast. A woman from Japan was in Vancouver trying to learn English but there were too many opportunities to speak Japanese, so she came to live in Powell River to go to school. She met our neighbour, fell in love and got married. They now live here, but visit her family back in Japan with their two children so they can know their grandparents and heritage. A nice international love story. - Margy

Dearest Miyako,
Oh, what a lovely photos and especially the rice crackers make me mouth water.
We just came back from our trip to Atlanta for stocking up on health food and I've bought some Japanese green tea (the local green tea at the stores was NOT at all to my liking...) and with my green tea I always have mixed, unsalted nuts and a rice cake from brown rice and Tamari, seaweed. So there you go, all you show here I would probably LOVE to eat.
Sending you hugs and blessings. It is freezing a little bit tonight, again after the first frost last night.
Plants are inside the greenhouse and we have to dress in sweaters again and wearing boots.
Love from a crisp Georgia/USA,
Mariette

I really like seeing how autumn looks in Japan!

Lots of beautiful garden scenes. The biscuits and snacks are so wonderfully decorated that they look too good to eat.

Andrea Priebe said...

The trees in Japan are just scrumptious and with the Temple, it is all so beautiful. And I love rice crackers, but I am guessing what we have here in the states are not nearly as delicious as what you had in this store. Yummmm .... Lucky you, Miyako

hello Miyako, great photos. when I see photos of Japan, I feel like Amelie Nothomb (google a Belgian author after whose books movies were made) who spent a few years of her childhood living in Japan and was so impressed with Japanese culture that she wanted to become a Japanese.

LV said...

You found just the right store with plenty wonderful goodies. Loved the tour.

So lovely! These are making me want to hope on a plane and go to Japan!

Very nice autumn scenery at the temple Miyako. Rice cakes look delicious in your country, they are horrible, dry things here. :-)

Hello Miyako.. Thank you so much for the Thanksgiving wishes. I love the temple with all the fall colors and how lovely the rice cakes are. I bet they were yummy... Michelle

Gunilla Bäck said...

Gorgeous, dear Miyako! I love the temple and the fall colours. Have a wonderful week!

Florence said...

Dear Mikayo, the temple with all the surrounding autumn leaves is so peaceful and beautiful! I will have to try the rice cakes with seaweed with my tea. Thank you for showing me a little each week of your beautiful country.
