JP-152723: Great Archway of the Heian's Shrine

Postcrossing from Kyoto, Japan



Kyoto, the ancient Capital City of Japan where chobin2006 lives is beautiful. A city that hosts Japan's world heritage sights.

This great archway of the Heian's Shrine is Vermilion-lacquered.

Vermilion is a bright-red, water-insoluble pigment consisting of mercuric sulfide, once obtained from cinnabar, now usually produced by the reaction of mercury and sulfur.

Such a lovely girl as chobin2006 is hoping that I'll be able to visit her beautiful city someday.

Well, Chobin2006, I think I am now known to have itchy feet with empty pocket. So who knows who will knock at your door one day? ^_^

I love to travel under impossible circumstances. If this is the only way to dream,
then dream on little Bonbon2010.

Happy Postcrossing to you too Chobin2006! And thank you for this very lovely postcard.
