Monk, Kenninji - Kyoto  2016

Buildings, Kenninji - Kyoto  2016

While I was wandering around Kyoto, I came across this temple. "Kennin-ji was founded in 1202 CE and claims to be the oldest Zen temple in Kyoto. The monk Eisai, credited with introducing Zen to Japan, served as Kennin-ji's founding abbot and is buried on the temple grounds."

I titled the top photo "Monk, Kennin-ji," but that might be completely off the mark. I suspect that there are all kinds of positions within Zen temples.

Bonus: the public restroom just outside.
