Ryuonji Temple is cloistered away in the mountains, about two hours away from central Kyoto. It was originally built all the way back in the Heian period, as a temple for practitioners of shugendo (a mountain worship religion that combines aspects of Buddhism and Shinto). Thanks to the talented @ui_hii618love for capturing this autumn moment!

Hie Shrine is located at the center of Tokyo, and it is near the National Diet Building. This shrine is famous for the spot for “Enmusubi” which means Love Knot and Marriage Tie and for Safe Delivery to come true. It is like an oasis because it is surrounded by greenery although it is in the metropolitan city.
