Arashiyama Japan Photo Guide Bamboo 106

Even when visiting the same cities in Japan, every photography tour of Japan has some locations that I’m returning to and some locations that are new.  When visiting Kyoto, Fushimi Inari is always one that photographers want to visit along with the bamboo forest in Arashiyama. One location in Kyoto that isn’t always on my list of places it visit is Kenninji in Gion.

Kenninji and Arashiyama are not close to each other, Kenninji is in Gion and Arashiyama is Western Kyoto, but I’m including them both in this post just go along with the some places I return to and others are visited depending on what mother nature in Japan gives us!

Kenninji a lovely temple and especially a nice place to visit if it’s raining like it was one of our days touring Kyoto.  Kenninji has covered walkways around the edges so you can still appreciate the gardens but also allows photography inside most areas of the Temple.
