You can go to Toji Temple from the Kyoto station on foot. The fivefold pagoda is highest in Japan and a popular sightseeing spot in Kyoto. Moreover, you can see a Shidare Zakura, a weeping cherry tree in spring. Illuminated cherry blossoms at night are very fantastic.

As for Toji Temple, the scenes of spring and autumn are famous, but I like this early summer scenery with fresh greens. You can enjoy seeing the beautiful garden in this season more leisurely than the peak season, for there're fewer people. What's more, you can see the sunset with fresh greens just before the closing time.

Night cherry blossom light-up famous in Kyoto. It's a rare shrine where photographers can use tripod. There're many people not only photographers, but also tourists and people from foreign countries, so it's very bustle with them. Why don't you come to see this wonderful view?

The 55 meters high five-storied pagoda can be seen from a distance, and it's popular enough to appear in many pictures as Kyoto scenery. The presence becomes bigger as you come closer. And with cherry blossoms in spring, fresh green in summer and colored leaves in automn, the harmonies with nature are lovely in all seasons.

I could take a picture of elegant pagoda at twilight. But I think I could meet more beautiful scene at the season of cherry blossoms and its illumination event.
