Tour Time, Meeting Time, Meeting Place and Duration
This tour visits the east and the north mountain areas, where many famous
temples exist. Kinkakuji temple is known as the "Golden Pavilion".
The second and the third stories are gilded with gold leaf. The large pond
called " The Mirror Pond" is reflecting the pavilion on the pond,
which produces a picturesque view. Ryoanji temple is a Zen Buddhist temple
founded in 1450. The garden is known as a rock garden, which has no plants
and is composed of rocks and sand. Ginkakuji temple is a Zen temple founded
in 1490. The temple has a sober color, which gives the calmness of rest
and solitude. The pile of sand in the sand garden is said to represent
symbolic Mount Fuji. We stroll along the Philosopher's path.
