KKC Japan Fellowship - Day 1 - The Golden Pavilion

The second temple we visited today was Rokuon-Ji Temple – also known as The Golden Pavilion because the structure is wooden with gold-leaf on Japanese lacquer. The building is truly stunning as it sits on a pond. This is my favorite temple of the trip and it think the pictures of The Golden Pavilion are my best so far on this trip.
The site of the temple was also busy with numerous school groups – hundreds of Japanese students in their school uniforms covered the grounds. We talked with several groups of students and they asked us questions to practice their English. Japanese students also requested to have their picture taken with American teachers before we left the site.
