曼殊院の紅葉/Mansyuin in Autumn

皆さん、初めまして。新しくブログを担当します、りえこです。

Hello, everyone, this is a new writer Rieko.


オーナーのゆりが少し体調を崩しているので、できることをしようと思い、今回記事を執筆します。至らない点が多々あるとは思いますがご容赦ください。私も京都市ビジターズホストの資格を持っています。

Since the owner Yuri is down (becoming better), I'm trying to help her and started writing a blog. I am also certificated guide by Kyoto City, called City of Kyoto Visitors Host as well as Yuri. This time, let me show one of my favorite temple I visited this year.


11月25日に曼殊院(まんしゅいん)を訪問しました。

I (Rieko) visited Mansyuin Temple on Novermber 25th.


紅葉が有名なお寺ですが、今年は色づきが全体的に早く、ここは早くも終盤といった様子でした。

The temple is famous for autumn colors, but it is almost ending the season as it started to change earlier.



近くで見ると、気温が高かったのか、葉が木についたまま枯れてしまっているのですが、遠目に見ると、綺麗だなと思います。

When you take a closer look at maple trees, it's almost dried up because temperature was higher in the middle of November, but anyway from a distance, it is beautiful.



曼殊院は見所の多いお寺で、色々とご紹介したいところはあるのですが、まずはそのお庭の静謐さ、落ち着きに目を奪われることと思います。

Mansyuin is very interesting spot to visit to learn many things. The first of all before anything, its dry garden gives you a still, calm impression.


少しずつ、曼殊院のおもしろいところをご紹介する機会があればと願っています。

In another post, I'll show you its feature little by little if chances permits.
