temple noren design


The black and white contrast and complex shapes in this noren grabbed my attention. I am lucky to live in Kyoto with a rich source of inspiration so close by. There is always balance in the designs used in temples in Japan. If a noren is displayed it means the place is open. They are used in many colors, varieties and functions from the amazing temple gates to the local izakaya doorway.
