The garden washed by the rain

The rainy season is going to be over soon, However, the rain washed the dust away from the garden. And the garden showed us most beautiful face with vivid green moss.

If you have a little more time in Kyoto and want to see something different from the ordinary tourist spots, how about visiting here?

The garden covered with moss was made making the most of the scenery of the mountain foot.  In the center of moss-covered garden, Amida hall welcomes you. Close to the hall, plase look for tiny stone statues with their face showed up from the moss.The garden after the rain
