This pic is being dubbed as ‘the most beautiful photo of Kyoto’

It goes without saying that Kyoto, Japan, is a picturesque travel destination. But if you’re not convinced, here’s THE photo to prove it.

Leslie Taylor is a landscape and travel photographer who has been living in Japan for the last five years. In that span, he’s captured the most breathtaking sights the country has to offer, from ancient temples and shrines, to pristine forests filled with cherry blossoms.

His recent picture, however, has Reddit calling it as ‘the most beautiful photo of Kyoto’.

The Yasaka Pagoda in Kyoto, Japan.

The much-talked about image features a cobblestone street leading up to the five-story Yasaka Pagoda. The structure is nestled amongst old houses and shops, with the sky radiating a gentle purple hue.

This part of the Higashiyama District would normally be bustling with tourists, but Taylor was lucky enough to have the street all to himself, making it the perfect photo opportunity!
