Here's part 3 of my Kyoto photo collection. It's only been nearly two weeks since classes started, and I'm already behind in my readings (you'll note the plural form), so this post will be a bit short.
This is Kinkaku-ji (Golden Pavilion), formally known as Rokuon-ji (Deer Garden Temple). It was originally intended to be the retirement villa for Shogun Ashikaga Yoshimitsu, but was instead converted to a Zen temple by his son.
Entrance to Nijo Castle - built by Tokugawa Ieyasu (yes, the person who established the Tokugawa Shogunate) as the Kyoto residence for Tokugawa shoguns.
That's it for tonight - back to genetics.
