Japan Mar 2011 Day 3 – 嵐山 愛宕念仏寺 Otagi Nenbutsu-Ji

Kyoto - 嵐山 愛宕念仏寺 Otagi Nenbutsu-Ji

Day 3 in Japan started early, checking out of the hotel in Osaka before daylight and making our way to Kyoto. The weather was biting cold and even started to snow!

A rather quiet temple within the hills of Sagano, 愛宕念仏寺 Otaginenbutsu-ji.

Again, more of a photo log than a writing post. Enjoy!
