Haiku Poem – 京都稲荷

Inari peak
Kyoto spreads sun dips
quiet grace

(Ben version)
おいなりさん ひかり を そそぐ のぞむ まち

(Michiko version)
あかとりい ぬけて きょうと の ゆうのくも

From the top of Mount Inari, you can see the city of Kyoto as it spreads into the distance. It is a beautiful sight especially as the sun sets. After working hard to climb the mountain, the scenery is a magnificent reward. Although there are many people at the bottom of the mountain, when you reach the summit, the quiet is peaceful. In that moment, one cannot help but marvel at the natural beauty and feel that this place is blessed.
