Japan: Day 6 Part 2 - Kinkakuji Temple

Continuing on with my post about day 6, you can see part 1 here.
Kinkakuji or more commonly known as the Golden Pavilion is one of the most famous temples in Kyoto, Kinkakuji is a three storey building that had the two top stories covered in pure gold leaf.

so beautiful~
can you see the chinese phoenix on top?
People are the only ones who visit Kinkakuji Temple

hundreds of koi in the lake in front of Kinkakuji

An amazing variety of vending machines at Kinkakuji, from icecream to instant noodles, oh I love Japan for the convenience

When we left Kinkakuji to our next destination (Ginkakuji Temple), Emma told us to look at the top of the mountain on the left, and I found the word 大 which means 'big', and according to Emma there;s a character on each of the tall mountains surrounding Kinkakuji (I think), and they also fire fireworks from each of these characters each year, sugoi!

That's the end of part 2 of day 6, next up will be Ginkakuji the Silver Pavilion, stay tuned...I think I sound like a radio host haha
