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.
The shariden at Rokuon-ji, commonly known as the Golden Pavilion (Kinkaku), that extends over Kyōko-chi-ko (Kyōko-chi pond).
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”).
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.
Here, I’m here – time ticks away.
