I love the multi-colored kanji

 

Higashiyama (east mountain) is in the east of Kyoto against wooded hills. Many sites central to Japanese culture are there: the geisha district of Gion, the Yasaka Shrine, Kiyomizu Temple, Tōfuku-jii, and Sanjūsangen-dō are all within a day's stroll, unless you actually enter one of these sites, any of which by themselves can absorb you for many hours. Higashiyama is also great for random photography.
