Textile Design 15: Heian Shrine

Today's featured design is Heian Shrine, We just got the tenugui towels with this pattern!

Kyoto, encircled by mountains has a single river running through it.
The mountains appear soft and majestic, the river keeping the earth gently moist.
People must have thought that that is why this city is the capital, because of its beauty, surrounded by nature's elegance.
Even now I enjoy looking at Heian shrines that have that atmosphere in common with many other shrines and temples.
