XXVIII – haiku/ aprilie

intr-o parte – vis,
alta, – realitate:
oare unde sunt?

de partea cealalta a pozei este un vis…

📍Kitayama, Kyoto, Japan
If you want to experience traditional rural Japan and you’re willing to drive a rental car, the Kitayama Mountains north of Kyoto make the perfect day trip.

While Kyoto is surrounded by mountains on three sides, the Kitayama Mountains, which lie to the north of the city, make the best destination for daytrips out of the city. There are easy drive and they’re filled with temples, traditional thatched-roof houses and scenic vistas.

The most popular destination in the Kitayama area is the village of Kurama, which is famous for its mountain temple, Kurama-dera Temple. This is the classic daytrip out of Kyoto and it is easily reached by the Eiden Eizan Line, which leaves Kyoto’s Demachiyanagi Station (at the northern terminus of the Keihan Main Line) and arrives in Kurama 30 minutes later. Some cars on this line have special sightseeing cars that allow you to enjoy the views of Mt Hiei and the southern Hira-san Range. Once the train passes Ichihara, you enter forest, including some nice stretches of bamboo and maple. The classic hike here involves climbing to the main hall of the temple, then over the peak of Mt. Kurama and down to the picturesque village of Kibune, from which you can hike down to Kibune-guchi Station on the Eizan Line (total hiking time about three hours at a relaxed pace).

cires rozaliu,

de ai incalta poante,

ce pas de balet!…

📍heian Jingu Shrine – Kyoto
Heian Shrine (平安神宮, Heian Jingū) has a relatively short history, dating back just over a hundred years to 1895. The shrine was built on the occasion of the 1100th anniversary of the capital’s foundation in Kyoto and is dedicated to the spirits of the first and last emperors who reigned from the city, Emperor Kammu (737-806) and Emperor Komei (1831-1867). Heian is the former name of Kyoto.
A giant torii gate marks the approach to the shrine, around which there are a couple of museums. The actual shrine grounds themselves are very spacious, with a wide open court at the center. The shrine’s main buildings are a partial replica of the original Imperial Palace from the Heian Period, built on a somewhat smaller scale than the original.

Primele mele lumanarele DIY: prima – din resturile unui mon guerlain impreuna cu o adiere de vanilie, cea albastra – combinatie pura din doua rituals sakura, care au ars inainte de vreme…

Mainile imi emana un parfum de un amestec de Fericire si Magic, sentimentele imi lumineaza in explozii de culoare, iar ideile imi danseaza intr-un vartej de creativitate si poezie…

Poate inceputul unei pasiuni, poate finalul unei curiozitati, poate un “este” si un “va fi” continuu…

XX – haiku / aprilie

un acoperis
de lemn, sub acoperis
de nea, si stele…

acoperis de casa, sub acoperis de omat, sub acoperis de stele… singuratatea se retrage in sine, sub permanenta acestei idei…

XIX – haiku/ aprilie

ma impachetez
in bulgari de culoare,
zburand spre pamant…

Cand norii se bat jucaus cu bulgari din curcubeu, ceea ce ajunge pe Pamant, se face Primavara…

XVIII – haiku/ aprilie

dragul meu fuji –
esti acoperit de nea,
ori de lebede?

pare ca lebedele vin desprinse din omat, sau, poate zapada este, de fapt, atingerea aripilor lor in zbor…

hotarul dintre
vis si realitate –

📍Fujiyama Shrine, Nagasaki Fujiyama Shrine is renowned in the Kyushu Region for its wisteria garden. In fact, one of the wisteria trees named “Ofuji” is recognized as a “natural treasure” in Nagasaki Prefecture. The other famous tree in the garden is a giant 800 year old “Ogatama Tree”, or better known by its botanical name – Magnolia compressa. Wisteria is one of the trees native to Japan, and said to be the tree for en-musubi meaning matchmaking or bringing people together. Night time illumination at the garden will be available during the blooming peak season. 📸@ramumi8 #tokiotours #kyushu #en-musubi #matchmakingtree #treeoflove #lovetree #ogatamatree #nagasaki #FujiyamaShrine #magnoliacompressa #wisteria #wisteriatree

podet fermecat,
insorindu-ti norocul
spre inflorire…

If you’re looking for a Kyoto-based sakura spot that’s a little quieter than other places, Rokusonno Shrine is a real gem. One of the popular places to take photos at the shrine is by the red bridge, and it’s said that visitors who cross over it will be granted with good luck! 🌸 🥰 📷: @yayoi_colors
