Kibune Forest

By the road that led from Kibune-guchi train station, north of Kyoto I found that if I wasn’t admiring the Kibune River, I took in the beauty of the forest along the hike leading to the shrines three kilometres ahead.

Sometimes ferns covered the undergrowth. Other times I raised my eyes to the dense forest on the hillside, each tree standing guard like a soldier ready to march — tall and strong.
