Just a last touch before leaving

Shukakuji is a very small temple in the Arashiyama area, hidden in a back alley on the few blocks between the famous Nonomiya shrine and the Jojakko-ji. I have not found it in the maps, the books at hand don't mention it and a few Japanese blogs and webpages refer to it as a flower-viewing place. But the garden is impressive, for its flower as well as for its maple trees — as you can't imagine by this detail.
