More from Beautiful Kyoto

Just a few more images from Kyoto just because there are so many beautiful sights to share!

I love the detail of this temple lantern with grapevine and parrots

The gorgeous Japanese Umbrella Pine

On my last day I even managed to find time to 'ForageFor' a few vintage flower items at Toji temple flea market.

A stallholder selling cut seasonal Umbrella Pine and winter flowering cherry blossom, they were going like hot cakes!

Indigo dyed textiles

Perhaps the 'Cliff Richard' of Japan?

I couldn't resist this beautiful antique Japanese hair clip in its gorgeous original box

And finally a couple of signs seen along the way that brought a smile to my face.  I'm not sure if the first one is a mis-translation or not but life certainly does feel like this sometimes.  The second one, I think, is informing the public what to do if a dog starts a fire?
