:iconthxfav1::iconthxfav2::iconthxfav3::iconthxfav4: Red Temple in Nikko Forest. Shrines and Temples of Nikkō encompasses 103 buildings or structures and the natural setting around them. It is one of the most beautiful areas in Japan. The buildings belong to two Shinto shrines and one Buddhist temple. Nine of the structures are designated National Treasures of Japan while the remaining 94 are Important Cultural Properties. [link]

:icondsfav1plz::icondsfav2plz::icondsfav3plz: on Otoyo Yashiro Mouse Shrine. I was was on Kyoto's Philosopher's Walk when a local man approached me and volunteered to give me a private tour of areas the tourists normally don't see.

:icondbthx1::icondbthx2::icondbthx3: on Lady with the Purple Parasol. The parasol dancers wear brightly colored kimonos and wooden shoes. Girls move around in shuffling steps to a Mikado song (one in 4/4 time). Counting during the dance is generally done in twos for one measure and in four for two measures. A parasol dancer may dance alone or in a group of four. The dance starts with the parasol opened and held over the head, with the dancer's hands at chest level. As the dance progresses, the parasol is moved about. [link] Video [link] Link to photo

:icondsfav1plz::icondsfav2plz::icondsfav3plz: Cherry Blossom Dancer. This lady was waiting her turn to dance. The sun shined very warm on her. She danced. The audience loved her. [link]

Yes of course you can use Japanese Footbridge as wallpaper. If you have any difficulty, let me know. (Response might be slow since I am traveling in Japan) Thanks for the fave!
Very pretty composition! I really like how the meandering rocks bordering the pond guides the eye around the picture. I'd love to just sit and relax in a place like that!

Sometimes I'm a bit scared from the beauty of these gardens and the mystical precept hidden in every single rock and flower... That makes them so hard to build in any other country (wich doesn't mean I'll give up my dream to create and support a Japanese garden on the Balkan peninsula :P)

I think there is a lot more to a Japanese garden than meets our eyes. In my personal opinion, a Japanese garden is a portal, a window, a hint of the infinite beauty in the creative universe. We love it and we fear it simultaneously because deep down inside we know it points to the infinite beauty within us. Thank you for the fave!
