The flame of the garden: Ryoanji Temple, Kyoto

Ryoanji Temple, Kyoto sightseeing
This garden is very famous for the placement of fifteen stones.
(ref. http://www.artofjpn.com/kyoto/ryoanji.html)

The earthen wall is elegantly plain, like tea bowls with wabi flavor.

The stones stand out, by being enclosed with the simple walls and positioned in a plain of raked white gravel.

This wall functions well as a flame of the garden.
