An old viewfinder: Saihoji Temple

Saihoji Temple, Kyoto sightseeing
This round window is close to a garden with the rich natural surroundings and was made some hundred years ago. The window is attached to a small waiting room. People in those days used to enjoy the scenery while waiting for a tea ceremony. Perhaps people in Japan in those days love something of a camera??

It is a perfectly framed view. I guess they were on to something back then.
