Chion-in (知恩院) in Higashiyama-ku, Kyoto, Japan is the headquarters of the Jōdo-shū (Pure Land Sect) founded by Hōnen (1133–1212), who proclaimed that sentient beings are reborn in Amida Buddha's Western Paradise (Pure Land) by reciting the nembutsu, Amida Buddha's name.

The vast compounds of Chion-in include the site where Hōnen settled to disseminate his teachings and the site where he died.

At the end of our first day in Kyoto, some of us still had the energy to shoot some illuminated temples near Gion area. This was shot near the Main Hall of the Chionan Temple.


A lot of people were passing by this area so I bumped down the exposure to 30 seconds to get rid of them
