Monochrome photograph of Komyo-in Temple’s circular window by John Einarsen.


John Einarsen is the founder of Kyoto Journal and a licensed teacher of Miksang contemplative photography. He has exhibited numerous times in Japan and overseas, and this photo, taken at Komyo-in Temple in Kyoto, was among a selection exhibited and sold at Portland Japanese Garden during the summer of 2018. Komyo-in, thought to have been founded over 600 years ago, is one of the subtemples at Tofuku-ji in the Higashiyama area of the city, perhaps best known for its karesansui garden by 20th century designer Shigemori Mirei.

The photo is printed on gorgeous handmade Japanese paper at the highly regarded Awagami workshop in Shikoku.
