Kyoto, Japan [Part 5]

Here's part 5. This will most likely be the last update in regards to my Japan trip.

Ginkaku-ji - temple of the silver pavilion.

This is what happens when you don't bother taking notes during the trip - you forget wherever 'here' is when you go back to view your own pictures. Needless to say, this is another one of Japan's many temples.

I may not remember where 'here' is, but at least I recall that you'd use the water here to cleanse yourself spiritually, at least that's what the people here believed.

the one u can't recall the name is Heian Jingū (平安神宮)... i was well impressed by the bright color while bypassing it on my way to kingaku-ji...

Hey thanks for the reply! Yeah my trip didn't go to all of the places I wanted to visit, but I truly enjoyed the trip nonetheless.
