As I struggle with completing episode 5 of the podcast, which is likely to be the most difficult episode to finish in the entire series, I decided to get ahead a little with the photos by uploading some images correlating to upcoming episode 6.
These handcrafted 3-legged chairs in a carpenter’s booth at the Kitano Tenmangu Shrine’s monthly flea market were quite comfortable, but a little pricey. The chairs were offered at around $330 to $550 US depending on wood choice.
These are the chairs discussed briefly in upcoming episode 6 of the podcast as we stroll through the giant flea market underway at the shrine this day.
I don’t know that the front of these 3-legged stools are intended to look like torii gates, but there is a resemblance.
The Kinkakuji golden pavilion and Ryoanji rock garden, a couple of the most touristy spots in Kyoto, are within very reasonable walking distances of Kitano Tenmangu Shrine as you can see on the map below. Kinkakuji and Ryoanji are identified just northwest of Kitano Tenmangu.
