The summer we lived in Hong Kong, my daughter and I took a girls trip together to Kyoto Japan. We had been the previous April during Cherry Blossom season and fell in love with Kyoto. We went back to explore other areas we didn’t get a chance to visit. Gio Ji Temple in the Arashiyama area is such a charming, peaceful place. Almost the entire grounds are carpeted with the most beautiful green moss. I did this sketch sitting along one of the tiny paths, while my daughter played with the temple cat.
