I love this shot! It looks like a ecological mattress! I am not sure if I would sleep on it but it is attractive ;-)
Thanks for visiting my blog yesterday!

thanks for the comments!!
Kyoto's humidity is not so much. But it is rather high in the site of this temple. Because of the humidity, the features of soil and rich trees, rich mosses got to cover the surface.

This is one of the most beautiful mosses in Kyoto and famous for the mosses. This temple is called "Saihoji Temple". And its other name is Koke-Dera, Moss Temple.

r and r,
The odd surface of the ground is very unique, I thinks too.

I wish I could sleep on it on a sunny day in summer!!
