Nagaoka Tenmangu : Kyoto

長岡天満宮 Nagaoka Tenmangu
Tenmangu are shrines for the god of thunder
He is also the god of scholarship
Hachijo-ga-ike (Pond of eighth street)
Yae shidarezakura (Double flower weeping cherry)
A nice week day
Picnic under cherry blossoms
It was so peaceful
Adults, children, dogs and pigeons
Relaxed and enjoying
Nagaokakyo used to be the capital city of Japan
Just for 10 years
AD 784-794
Ephemeral Dream of Spring
