Trip to Kyoto
Just got back from a long weekend in Kyoto. Wow, what a place. I must have been there a dozen times by now, but it never fails to impress me.
We went there to see the changing of the autumn leaves or “Koyo” as they are called here. Breathtaking. Although the weather was dull and overcast most of the time, there was thankfully little rain. It is the first time I have been to Kyoto during the Autumn, and it wasn’t a disappointment. The colours were almost surreally rich and deep with a saturation that belied the dull weather. There were points during my trip where I felt that I was walking though an oil painting, the colours were so vivid.
