31st March 2017
It’s supposedly a nice place, but the photos did not turn out great because of the gloomy weather… No blue sky and also no time to adjust aperture and etc. Can only shoot and go to reduce the camera’s exposure to the rain!
Off to the next destination – Nijo Castle! It was still raining but luckily it’s the drizzle kind~
Walked a longggg way to get to this castle, just to save on transport fee! 😂 But in the end the exterior doesn’t look “impressive” enough so I did not pay to go in. Only took some pictures from outside~
Next destination – Kinkakuji was a must-go for me even though it requires entrance fee as well! But it’s too pretty to miss!
So this is the reason for my visit – the golden temple covered with gold leaf! That’s also what Kinkakuji means to – 金閣寺! They also have a Ginkakuji which is the silver version, but it’s not in my itinerary cause the gold one looks much nicer! 😀
Back to the apartment early to pack and rest! Had a belated birthday celebration with Kumakuma because I really didn’t feel like it was my birthday the previous day! 😅 Cause no cake so no birthday feel~
