This temple is the head temple of the Tōfuku-ji School of the Rinzai sect of Zen Buddhism. It was built in 1236 on the instructions of Kujō Michiie, the great statesman of the Kamakura period, who desired to build in Kyoto a temple complexes in Nara. Its name is a combination of one character of Tōdai-ji and Kōfuku-ji in Nara. From 1236 to 1255, it was built and stored the Gautama Buddha statue and Maitreya (Bodhisattva). Its original buildings were burned, but were rebuilt in the 15th century according to the original plans. About this time it flourished as one of the Five Great Temples of Kyoto and generalizes the end temple of a 360 little more than piece temple. And then, although protection repair was added by the general of Ashikaga, Toyotomi, Tokugawa and others, and it was told the honor as the greatest Zen temple in Kyoto. Enterring Meiji period, the mister, the assembly hall, the head priest's residence and the abbacy were again burned down in 1881. Reconstruction was begun in 1890 and it was completed in 1934. Moreover, here is the place of autumnal leaves representing Kyoto here and many tourists visit here to see the paroramic view with autumnal tints. About 2000 autumnal leaves are seen from the Tsūten Bridge of this temple. It was a place of the most emotional autumnal leaves in having seen in my life.

Hi dear Mikio. This vibrantly coloured image brings back happy memories of my trip to Japan in autumn.Your title is most suitable for the colours of the Japanese maples. Nice POV focusing on the trees and just catching the roof of the temple. Regards. Klaudio.

The shades of orange, lemon and red are inspiring and inviting.
This is simplicity blended with color contrast and the outcome is pleasing.

Stunning orange/red/yellow autumn colors from 2007, Mikio.
Rising temple roof-tops mingle in fine harmony with the vivid colors.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

PS. To answer your question about fracking: Honestly, I don't know whether the gas will be exported. We are more concerned with the environmental effects of the process than what they do with the product.

This is the moment when nature shows off its autumn splendour with burst of stunning colors. it's perfect and I'd hang that on my wall with great pride and I think you could not ask for anything better. You have captured the grand trees so beautifully when nature lavishes its best on you. Congrats
