Still of Japan … (II)


… a couple of hours later: Kinkaku-ji, Temple of the Golden Pavilion, a Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto. You’re allowed to the premises only up to 16:50 local time. You can stay till 17:00, with some short excess. We arrived at 16:43. But what a view.

A small hint for all of those who want to visit Japan: it seems that many premises close at a quite early hour. So check it before you go. What is more, check your bus or train connection schedule. Buses may finish their itinerary around 17.00 or 18.00.
