https://flic.kr/p/Bx6WzC | Autumn in the Maple Gardens of Kitano Tenman-gū in Kyoto. | Yesterday, I ventured out to Kitano Tenman-gū (北野天満宮) in Kyoto, to enjoy the maple colours in their maple garden. It was a little disappointing because there was still quite a few green leaves and that vivid reddish brown wasn’t there. This is the Tenjin River (天神川) that flows through the maple garden.
