Flea Market and the Golden Pavilion

The weather is still quite comfortable in Kyoto and cool wind from time to time refresh us.  25th of the month is the Tenjin Flea Market at Kitano Tenmangu right in front of the school.

So many people are gathering this monthly event and we, as if avoiding this event, went to Ritsumeikan University to have lunch together.

After lunch we walk up to the Golden Pavilion (Kinkakuji-temple) to enjoy not only the golden pavilion but also giant bonsai boat, carp in the pond, and white snake mounds and the original tea house before finishing up.

We will be heading to the Silver Pavilion tomorrow to compare and contrast with the Golden Pavilion!
