Remember Tadao Ando? I went to Ibaraki to visit the Church of Light. This time, I went to visit Garden of Fine Art Kyoto. It is an open-air fine art museum that displays near-life sized reproductions of famous masterpieces on porcelain panels.
Hello! Greetings from the Golden Pavilion!
Kinkakuji, one of the most popular place to visit in Northern Kyoto. It is a zen temple that previously know as Rokuonji. It was a retirement villa Ashikaga Yoshimitsu, a shogun, before his death in 1408 then it converted into a zen temple.
Pontocho is a long dining alley where if you are lucky, you can see some maiko are heading to see their client. Pontocho is a place where you will forget that you lived in modern days. It’s so traditional and quiet.
We got off from the bus right opposite of Yasaka Shrine that night. It was not so crowded as what I expected. It was 6PM but it looks like a very late night when we arrived there.
There was a guy with a cute pose when we arrived at Yasaka Shrine gate. He took some snaps with the same pose and repeated it again because it was not like what he wanted. I could not get a clear gate photos because he was still there. :p
Kiyomizu-dera, located at Higashiyama, eastern Kyoto. It’s full name is Otowa-san Kiyomizu-dera because it was found near the Otowa waterfall. Kiyomizu-dera itself means Pure Water Temple.
The temple is registered in UNESCO World Heritage site. It is popular because of the large veranda at the temple area is supported with tall timber pillars that jut out over the hillside without nails. It is measured around 13 meters height.
