Kōdaiji 高台寺,where to get pickled sakura (1)

After 二年坂/三年坂, we were walked along ねねの道 (Nene no Michi) before reach to next temple  Kōdaiji 高台寺. This Japanese garden was inside an old Japanese house along ねねの道 ..


We saw this rickshaw puller with his lady passengers


I noticed even just manhole cover, they also done it so beautiful..





Now we reached the entrance of Kōdaiji 高台寺






I was very impressed with this sand craft into a dragon and cloud. 

This little moutain of sand represented as "Cloud"

We were sat here enjoying the sand craft and this beautiful garden




After came out from 高台寺,  we noticed this shop selling pickled sakura.


At first, i only bought two packets from this shop but when i realized that two was not enough, and we went back again to this shop at the last day in Kyoto, but too bad, it was closed on that day..Anyway, i managed to get from a market nearby , will share in next post. But i feel the pickled sakura sell in this shop has better quality. Next time if you were there, don't behave like me, buy as many as you can ,hehehe..


This map is another part of the earlier map..see where to get the picked sakura.

nice photos, makes me want to go even more, but no traveling companion so sad :S At least get to see from your photos bits of Kyoto:) The pickled sakura sounds interesting

Dear, a lot of the shops here sell pickled sakura hoh?It must be their landmark pickled as I didn't see them in Tokyo, Asakusa, Yokohama & few cities in Hokkaido.Or may be I didn't pay enough attention at that time! Every part of the temple was well-maintained & I like the "Zen" garden very much!
