Hi-Def Pics – Zen Sanctuary: Kyoto, Japan (18 photos)

Koto-in Temple, Kyoto [hi-def]

Could there possibly be a more serene place than a temple sanctuary in Kyoto, Japan? Highly influenced by Zen Buddhism, these Japanese temples and gardens create a perfect environment to meditate and leave life's troubles behind.

Also included in this set are incredible landscapes found near shrines and palaces. I especially love the tall bamboo stalks that surround the roads and the brightly colored trees that seem to dance in the sunlight. Kudos to Marser for these awesome shots!
