JAPAN ~Kinkakuji Temple-Kyoto-UNESCO~

Great card from Japan (JP-190331) arrived today...Another wonderful example of the typical architecture of their temples. This ones two top floors are completed covered in gold leaf... And its reflection in the pond is such a beautiful sight... With as extra bonus that it's also a UNESCO site! Thanks Lyo!!

Nice stamp too!

Kinkakuji Temple, which as originally erected in 1397 by dybast Yoshimitsu Ashikaga, is harmonious with is back mountains and gardens.Kinkakuji (Golden Pavilion) is a Zen temple in northern Kyoto whose top two floors are completely covered in gold leaf. That is one of Kyoto's "must-take-a-look" for foreigners.
