京都御苑秋色   Kyoto Imperial Palace

2014年的紅葉狩, 我們就住在御苑對面的酒店, 由於地緣関係, 御院就是我們雨天的plan B。京都的十一月通常早上都是有雲, 中午太陽的熱力把雲曬開, 才會見到陽光,不過總有一两天會下雨。我們把御苑留在雨天去, 主要是如果萬一雨下得大,能夠馬上回酒店避雨和換衣服, 這就是plan B。11月25日那天, 早上起床在下雨, 早餐後仍在下小雨, 於是穿上雨衣, 並套上用塑膠袋自製的相機雨衣,就出發到御苑。原來紅葉早已見頃, 好些樹下己出現敷紅葉(しきもみじ)的美景。雨天其實有美的一面, 只是天色實在是太暗了, 過了中午, 仍無起色, 只好改變行程, 逛錦市場去也。

京都御所きょうとごしょ Kyōto gosho ),又名京都皇宮きょうとこうぐう Kyōto kōgū ),是位於日本京都府京都市上京區的一座宮殿建築,也曾是日本天皇的居所(皇居),自14世紀起到1869年遷都東京前,從北朝以降的歷代天皇皆居住於此。名稱中的「御所」在日語是指天皇或皇室主要成員之住所,現亦被京都市民做為該宮殿的簡稱 (Wikipedia)。

It was a rainy day on 11.25.2014. When the rain let up a bit after breakfast, we took out our make-shift camera rain coat and walked to Kyoto Palace. We stayed in a hotel nearby, this was our plan B for a rainy day, should it take a turn for the worse, we could just walk back to the hotel to change or for lunch. Kyoto Imperial Palace was at its peak in terms of fall colors, unfortunately, the sky was really dark, the color on the screen of the camera looked awful (most of the photos shown here had been adjusted with Lightroom). We performed our duty and strolled a fraction of the premises before heading out for lunch.

Wikipedia: The Kyoto Imperial Palace (京都御所 Kyoto-gosho) is the former ruling palace of the Emperor of Japan. The emperors have resided at the Tokyo Imperial Palace since 1869 (Meiji Restoration); the preservation of the Kyoto Imperial Palace was ordered in 1877. Today the grounds are open to the public, and the Imperial Household Agency hosts public tours of the buildings several times a day.
