We managed to visit Kinkaku-ji during out brief visit in Kyoto. We were a bit exhausted from a number of tourists around us at Kinkaku-ji that we decided to head back to Osaka earlier. At this time of the year, the sun sets rather early and I just feel that it wasn’t going to be easy to navigate on buses at night.
Here are some photos taken on the bus ride back from Kinkaku-ji.
We would have stayed a little bit more except Kyoto Station is extremely busy and we were too tired of having to figure out our way in the crowds. We will come back to visit more temples and shrines when we have another chance.
