Warning: there are a lot of pictures here of a Japanese garden. If you like that kind of thing, enjoy. If you don't, stick it out until the last picture, which the people who like Japanese gardens probably won't like, but you who don't, will (you know who you are).
The gardens are at the Imperial palace at Katsura, in western Kyoto. We had to take the tour via audio gadget since the tour guide spoke (rapid) Japanese. That added to the experience, actually.
