Kyoto - Arashiyama - Hidden temple

This picture is taken in Arashiyama on the outskirts of Kyoto.
I’m not really sure that this is a temple. My guidebooks didn’t mention this place and I discovered it only by chance by standing on my toes on a rock on a higher point in Arashiyama to be able to look over some high bushes.

The prayer flags on one side of the building in the correct colour order let me assume this is a temple.
Anyway I liked the forested hills in their spring colours.

You can reach Arashiyama by a short train ride from Kyoto Station (take the Sagano line).

I notice that this is my 300th post since I joined TE at the end of 2007.
Nothing special. Most of you have posted far more pictures in less time. Some of you post pictures nearly every day.
I don’t understand how you manage that.

TE means much fun for me but I don’t want to spend too much time online. There’s more in life than TE.
I really don’t understand how you combine your time on TE with your job, family, friends and other pursuits. In addtion, you also need time to take pictures (by travelling or by visiting places nearby, but in any case you will need time for that).
So honestly, frequent posters, did you find a way to give yourselves more than 24 hours in a day ?
