It was mid-afternoon and at almost freezing temperature, we started roaming Kyoto. I have always read about Kinkaku-ji so my sister and our friends decided to visit the temple which is one of the most popular buildings in Japan attracting a large number of visitors annually. This attracted me as the top two floors are actually covered with pure gold leaf.

Temples in Japan have these ladles everywhere for rinsing your hands and mouth before entering the temple. I found this one inside at a little stream, so I figured a second round of rinsing wouldn't hurt.
