Ginkakuji and Kinkakuji

After Kiyomizudera, we took them by bus to see Ginkakuji. The garden at Ginkakuji is very beautiful.

On the way, we saw these cute rabbits outside of a shop.

I thought the sun-dappled moss was really pretty, too.

On our way to Tosca, a vegan restaurant, we saw this cute bear cafe.

We all got the lunch set at Tosca. It was delicious!

After lunch, we went to Kinkakuji.

Kinkakuji is, as far as I know, the only Japanese temple fully plated with gold leaf. It’s really neat to see!

Well, that’s all for the temples! The next post will be about Gion!
