("iroiro") of Japan...

"iroiro" which we learned in language class the other day, means variety. In one DAY, within several subway stops we saw the following things:

1. A brutalist concrete building, which reminded me of a 2nd year architecture project

2. Entsuji - a tiny tiny temple in the middle of nowhere, where you can meditate on a zen garden

3. Kyoto Fine Arts Museum - a not very well known Tadao Ando project which houses HUGE recreations of famous paintings, done in ceramic tiles... So bizzare! This was one of my favorite things in Kyoto so far.
