It's been a while since I posted anything from Nanzenji. Nanzenji Temple (南禅寺), whose spacious grounds are located at the base of Kyoto's forested Higashiyama mountains, is one of the most important Zen temples in all of Japan. It has been one of my main muses as a photographer over the last 15 years and a search using the "nanzenji" tag returns 194 hits.
It is the head temple of one of the schools within the Rinzai sect of Japanese Zen Buddhism and includes multiple subtemples, that make the already large complex of temple buildings even larger.
