Kodai-ji Temple - Kyoto, Japan

Kodai-ji Temple not to far away from Yasaka-jinja or Kiyomizu-dera temple. It is part of the Rinzai Sect of Buddhism and established in 1606 by Nene who is the widow of the late Toyotomi Hideyoshi. I went a guy from Canada that I met earlier on the streets and his fiend a girl from  Taiwan. Was a really nice day!
