November 20, 2015

Japan, and more specifically Kyoto is a wonderful place to visit towards the end of November. If you do you will be able to enjoy not only the autumn leaf of the incredible number of maples but you will also be able to attend the annual Taiken-ten bonsai exhibition. These are photos from a previous trip to Kyoto, I hope you enjoy the beautiful colours and amazing trees.
