Photographer's Note

Kyoto had been the imperial capital of Japan for more than 1000 years (794-1868). Even today, some of old Kyoto people claim that Kyoto still be the capital of Japan by the law because the Emperor Meiji didn't issue the Imperial ordinance for the relocation of the capital --according to them. They say that the Emperor and his government are just on the "trip" to Tokyo for only 140 years.

 I love to visit this old city. It's only 40-minute trip by train from my hometown Nara to Kyoto. Of course, I like to see the historical monuments such as the temples and the palaces. But it's more interesting for me to stroll on the backstreets of the city.

 This picture is one of my recent shots in Kyoto. I found this unchanged quarter along the Aneya-Koji Street in the middle of the downtown of the city. It was a very cold morning in the clear sunshine.

I tried to look the other side of the wall on the left. There were a temple and a graveyard.
