Grain for design, Eikando Temple, Kyoto

Grain for design, Eikando Temple, Kyoto
This photo is the outer wall of a main building in a temple. The grain woody texture of the wall goes well with the one of the pillar. In this way, the grain pattern often is used as an element of the design in Japanese wooden architecture and skillful eyes and technique are needed to choose materials, cut them out of logs and come out the beautiful grain. The grain is, I think, one of better points of view, when we see Japanese traditional architecture.

Love this timber. Then the description of the sushi is first rate, terrific to eat as well. The style is a far cry from the sushi take-aways here.
