Kyoto/Japan 2013 photo diary part IV



 In Kyoto I decided to visit the golden pavilion(Kinkakuji) which was once belonged to a shogun. What really amazes me is that the entire top two floors of the structure is completely covered in gold leaf. It was rebuilt in 1955 but it still glistens in the sun like a diamond. Travelling around Japan is like a series of surprises that never ends.

  4. So pretty. Was it a really busy place? In some photos, you were able to capture the space without anybody in the photo!
