Very old temple (500 years old!)

At the short stay in Kyoto, I visited the Ginkaku-ji temple.
It was first time for me, although I have climbed the mountain
behind the temple. (The mountain is famous as "Daimonji Yaki".)

The Ginkakku-ji temple. It was originaly a cottage for the Japanese
general, Yoshimasa Ashikaga (1449-1473).

The main building ("Kannon-den"). It looks quite old!

Sand garden. It looks solid and is quite different from the another
famous Kyoto sand garden in the Ryoan-ji temple.
