Kimono Forest Revisited 2019 - Kyoto

It was only last  May 2018 that my wife, daughter, and I visited Kyoto's Kimono Forest for the first time. We were accompanied there by our friend Gil who's residing in Kyoto.

It was only last 2018 when my wife, daughter, and I visited the world-famous Arashiyama Bamboo Grove . Back then, we were accompanied by our friend Gil who gave us tips on when to visit and what to try out in and around this famous tourist destination.

This temple was also registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994 as part of the Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto.  Tenryuji  ( 天龍寺 ) My wife, daughter, and I first visited Tenryuji during our 2018 Japan trip . We revisited Tenryuji again this year and with us this time were my parents and siblings. Aside from that, unlike our first visit, we now got to go inside the Sogenchi Garden vicinity and see with our own eyes the picturesque garden and the Sogenchi Pond .  Muso Soseki Sogenchi Garden History Speaking of Sogenchi Garden and Sogenchi Pond, both were designed and created by Muso Soseki in the 14th century. Unlike the temple buildings of Tenryuji which were destroyed and reconstructed several times, the garden still retains its original appearance. It is currently designated as a Special Place of Scenic Beauty of Japan
