Default Japan Tour: Hirosawa Lake Kyoto

??????

On a trip to Kyoto's Lake Hirosawa, we saw cherry blossoms and many white and blue heron.

In Japanese, they are known as "shirasagi."

The male (?) in front of us is about 2-3 feet tall, and was completely unfazed by our presence.

He was hunting - for food and for a smaller white (female?) nearby.

Another blue heron was approaching the female from the opposite side.

Just west of the lake was a nursery filled with cherry trees. There was also statuary and a beautiful cistern.

Later, we strolled over beyond the lake to Daikakuji Temple.
