Ginkakuji Temple, traditional japanese beauty

Ginkakuji, the temple of the Silver? Pavilion

Ginkakuji temple( Silver Pavilion ) is a UNESCO World Heritage site, like Kinkakuji temple( Golden Pavilion )

Unlike Kinkakuji, it is plain rather than ornate in its design.

There’s a theory that Ashikaga Yoshimasa, who built Ginkakuji, abandoned his plan to cover it with silver leaf due to his lack of political power.

But I like this “WABI SABI” style, which is a traditional japanese beauty.

 

Delicious Udon ( Japanese noodle ) restaurant, “OMEN” near Ginkakuji

My best UDON restaurant in Kyoto, no, in Japan! lol

Dipping Chewy UDON and seasonal Kyoto vegetables  into DASHI( broth ) and eat them together.

It’s soooo good!

 

 

 

Philosopher’s Path( Tetsugaku no michi ) around Ginkakuji

Philosopher’s Path( Tetsugaku no michi ) follows a canal which is lined by hundreds of cherry trees so you can see beautiful cherry blossom in spring.

Approximately two kilometers long, ( 30 minutes walk, quit long, exhausting if it’s summer lol ) the path begins around Ginkakuji and ends in the neighborhood of Nanzenji.
