A Walk To | Golden Pavilion Kinkakuji, Kyoto

We took longer time than we had expected in Fushimi Inari (due to trail was closed for Michelle Obama visit, find perfect time to take picture while no other tourists passing by, and our slow walking pace while trekking the trails haha), sooo.. we thought that we couldn't make it to find Geisha in Gion which actually located near our hostel. People said that before sunset is the perfect time to meet Geisha. Thus, we decided to visit Kinkakuji - and it's the right option! 

Nothing much to say about this Zen temple. It's so pretty and calming! Though we ran from station to the entrance garden (we're afraid because the place is closed at 5pm, it's seconds to 5pm at that time), worth all the sweat! haha

I took train from Fushimi Inari and then took a bus.
