Kyoto, Sanzen-In

Jan 7th, we left the hotel early, and took the bus out of town to Sanzen-In, a large and beautiful temple grounds. Access to the grounds required a long walk along this pathway in the snow!

After a 5 minute walk in the snow, we reached the main entry building.

We removed our shoes, and walked through the building (carrying the shoes!).

The temple was currently in use, and like most tradional Japanese buildings, it was uninsulated, and these heaters were very popular!
