落柿舎, Rakushisha

Winter has arrived, and upon entering 師走 (shiwasu), or December, the month of "running teachers," I have had the chance to observe the last few leaves fall from the trees outside. Last Saturday, I made a trip to Kyoto's Arashiyama district, where I stopped by an old hut formerly inhabited by Mukai Kyorai, a student of Matsuo Basho. Here are just a few glimpses of "The Hut of Fallen Persimmons" (Rakushisha):

Hut with permissons "before the fall"...

Ahh...kirei da pretty...
