Not much I can add to the title, except to give locations. This first one is from a farmhouse in the village of Yairoishi, up in the mountains of Iwami.

This is of the Tea Room at Kennin-Ji, the oldest Zen temple in Kyoto.

This is at Komyozen-Ji, a delightful small temple in Dazaifu, Fukuoka. It has my favorite temple garden.

  1. Never knew these windows still exist. I used to read a lot about them in our history that my country (Bangladesh) used to have them in 17th century. Very beautiful works they are and once again very nice capture
