Kyoto -- Again

September again, Japan again, Kyoto again.

This time I insisted in visiting Kinkyakuji, perhaps the most famous temple in Japan.

Once to be the palace of the Shogun, I first knew this golden building from the cartoon "Ikkyu", like most people in China in my age.

Although it is an icon of Japan now, the real thing is rather smaller than I expected. Bit disappointed.

One interesting thing I found out at Kinkyakuji is that I can see the Daimunjiyama from here.

Next is re-visit Kyomizuji, but I found something new -- Kodaiji, which made a pretty good ending for the one-day Kyoto trip.
