Kinkaku-ji Temple, Kyoto

Still remains summer, but moving into the fall.  Good weather for a walk.

I have come Kinkaku-ji temple on foot where is not far from my home.
Kinkaku-ji (金閣寺 literally “Temple of the Golden Pavilion”), officially named Rokuon-ji (鹿苑寺 literally “Deer Garden Temple”), is a Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto.

Although filled with swarms of visitores, Kinkaku can be looked over a pond and people doesn’t come out.

 

Occasionally the wind makes ripple on the surface of mirror-smooth pond.

The Golden Pavilion is set in a magnificent Japanese strolling garden,  kaiyū-shiki-teien (回遊式庭園 literally “a landscape garden in the go-round style”).

Following arrows with many visitors, and passing the shootable point at regular intervals, I just have to feel the rides at an amusement.

 

My feeling would be caused by the perception of that the present pavilion structure was rebuilt in 1955, after the original pavilion was burned down on 1950 by a young novice monk.
