I was born in Kyoto and have never left. Even so, I have never gotten tired of it.
Kyoto is called the place of "San shi, sui mei (beautiful mountains and clear water)", as you might see in the wonderful scenery, such as "Higashiyama Sanju-Roppo (36 mountain ranges)" or the beautiful flow of the Kamo river. From old times, people have always been enchanted by the many charms of Kyoto.
At the end of this autumn, I wore a KIMONO and visited Eikando temple to see the final stage of its famous foliage. The leaves of red and gold had almost completely fallen, and the premises were hushed in silence.
I stood there in the main hall where many visitors had gone, and felt the perpetual flow of the time. It was as if I was able to have a conversation with Buhda. This KIMONO magic brought me such a wonderful experience.
