Kurumazaki-jinja | Kyoto, Japan | Pointe of View


Every Monday, I feature an image and backstory from my Pointe of View series. Visit the Kickstarter page to preorder the book.

I have been traveling in Japan for the last couple days, and it’s already been packed with amazing experiences. Below, a little sneak peek of what I did yesterday in Kyoto. It was 39 degrees outside, but Kaori danced away, and we ended up at Kurumazaki-jinja, a shrine to the gods of the performing arts.

More to come!
