28 Gorgeous and Serene Photos of Japanese Temples

Share: 

Japan is a photographer's paradise with incredible natural scenery and human-made structures (some of which we have featured before). And while it's having a bit of a hard time at the moment, the strength of the Japanese people has lasted thousands of years and will keep on. The subject of this collection is temples – something very intertwined in the culture of Japan and something of huge beauty for the rest of us. So enjoy the collection and book a ticket!

I am on my last day of my trip in Japan as I type this. I have spent three weeks in the wonderful country and seen many temples and shrines.

Yes, the Golden Pavilion is impressive and one of the best out there, but there are so many others in Kyoto, and then thousands out around Japan. It is a shame that this feature focused on only a few.

Wonderful photography still.

Some really nice shots there for sure. I have been living in Kyoto and doing photography for about 6 years and it never gets stale here. Always sooooo much to feel and experience. The many temples show here are great but make sure yu get off the beaten path and explore asnyou never know what, or who, you will come across.

Here are my photos from my time here, enjoy.

Kiyomizu-dera, deva gate, Kyoto, Japan

The pictures are so beautiful that it takes my breath away. As I carefully go through each picture, I imagine myself in them and feel completely relaxed and peaceful which is quite hard to achieve in the world today. Until I visit this country of splendors and wonders that tends to enchant every sense, I shall carry its beauty within my heart 🙂 Reply
