      Trane - your photos are so bad... they make me miss Japan far too much. Great colours and very japanese. I love that place :)

      @ François — Thank you! This place really is magic. As for the faves, why not fave them all? It's free, you know.

      @ Boopsie Daisy — I promise that for the next week I'll post nothing but boring/mundane photos. Unless Tori Amos shows up, in which case I won't be able to resist a full-on photo shoot.

      @ Brian — Your shit *is* cool! But you're not allowed to mention burritos while I'm in Japan. Damn — you just made my mouth water!

      @ Pete — Hee hee hee. I specialize in bad photography.

      @ Ted — The green at this particular temple has a level of greeness that is even higher than the level of greeness at surrounding temples. I don't know why — must be the good gardeners.

      I want to sleep under this tree!

      @ naniwanorider — Thank you! It's a beautiful tree.

      @ gofeetgo — Um. Wow. But since it's a Buddhist temple I think you have to say "Buddha is great." :)

      @ petrichor — Ha ha! The Tendai priests at this place would probably tell you that the Zen temple is just down the street! (Actually, one of the most famous Zen temples IS just down the street.)

      @ ogroboku — I think the Tendai gardeners would try to sweep you up with their brooms. :P

      Ha ha! Thanks for that link Angie. I wonder if there's a Japanese group called "That one maple tree at Shoren-in"?

      Right, that does it. I have nothing to do today so after seeing this I'm going off to take a few pictures of temple gardens and then find a bamboo forest to get lost in - copying is the best form of flattery and all that...

      Sean — You should totally, totally take a bunch of temple garden shots. I'd love to see them. It might be raining this weekend though. But hey — rain makes for lovely moody temple shots, right?
