Kinkaku-ji - The Golden Pavillion
And how can I go to Kyoto without visiting the famed Kinkaku-ji? (Temple of the Golden Pavillion) The view there was truly breathtaking!!
Of course, there are more things to look around aside from the golden temple itself. Here is a worker trimming a tree in the garden surrounding the Kinkaku-ji. He's perched so precariously high up!
Yes, I am fascinated by the mossy roofs of these little huts. :D
I found this giant bug when I saw two girls bending over and taking photos of something on the ground, so I went to inspect when they walked away. This not-so-little insect was walking the area like a boss! It was a pretty high traffic area too and for some reason it is surviving pretty decently. I wonder what insect is this?
