Higashi-Hogwanji Temple

Higashi-Hogwanji Temple

The massive Goei-Do (Founders Main Gate, 16th century CE) of Higashi-Honganji, viewed from the main hall’s corridor. Watercolor, 40x60cm, done in 1 1/2 days.This huge Buddhist compound right in the heart of Kyoto is among the main centers of Shin Buddhism, the most widely practiced Buddhism in Japan. It was late autumn afternoon; I’ve found that the sub-tropic afternoon sunlight casts golden warm color, yet its clear-dry sky produces a crisp, bluish shades (tropical sunlight, however, is rather greyish in both).
