I visited this lesser known part of Nara by myself and enjoyed all of the old architecture, cats, temples, shrines, craft shops and cafes. After an exhausting and exhilarating day, I drew this map as a souvenir of my delightful day.
This is one of Kyoto’s prettiest little temples. It is a subtemple of Daikoku-Ji, a huge temple complex in the NW part of the city. I sketched this quickly from the moon viewing veranda (engawa) while others were viewing and meditating on the garden. Maples were so delicate and beautiful and ginko leaves are always charming. Watercolor and ink.
This boat is moored at the head of the Takase River near the Okura Hotel in Kyoto. This canal was dug in 1611 and used to transport goods to various places in Kyoto.
This particular old boat is loaded with sake. The water is fresh and clear and flowing in this canal, with pretty autumn leaves in the water and on the walkways.
I sat on a damp concrete step(lower left) on a cold and damp afternoon and tried this scene.
