Photographer's Note

Located in Kyoto, Heian Shrine is perhaps the most popular of all Japanese Shinto shrines.. The garden at Heian was my 2nd favourite out of all the ones I saw in Kyoto (my favourite being Royanji, of course). As I came to learn, it is home to various rare species, including some pond turtles. Some websites list the shrine as a top 5 destination in Kyoto.

As for the girl with the red and white dress...I have no idea what her function is. I tried to find some information online but found nothing. So if any one of you knows, please enlighten us. Thanks :)
