Kinkaku-ji is the precedent for ginkaku-ji. The former is the Golden (Kin~) Pavilion Temple; the latter is the Silver (Gin~) Pavilion Temple. There is a whole load of culture and meaning behind each individual temple and also the relationship between these two. However, I’m not yet available to do real fact checks (am pretty pedantic about such stuffs), so I shan’t share anything other than more travel photos!
Since I got back, I have been busy catching up with work, spending time with the doubleOs (babyboo and his new babybro), at the same time trying to get enough sleep. Will have to leave the rest, relax, and rejuvenate, to this upcoming weekend. Yawn. And still I blog at 12:34am. I can’t let this one go, I have been waiting to feature this gorgeous Golden place!
Here we go, different angles~
The Silver one may look like it pales in comparison, but it really has its own beauty, and in a different class of its own.
With love, from Kyoto. ❤
