Then we caught bus 12, which would take us to the Kinkakuji Temple (Golden Pavilion) on the other side of Kyoto. (I was thrilled that there was a bus that went there from our neighbourhood! I love buses while traveling.). Our timing was good as the water was really sparkling on the gold leaf covered pavilion, although it was quite crowded. I suspect it it is always crowded!
After wandering through the gardens and grabbing some cool drinks we headed into the city for a coffee break, then to the main train station to head south to the Fushimi-Inari Taisha Shrine (the tunnels of torii). This is another beautiful but crowded spot, and our visit here means all the photographs we are contractually obligated to take before leaving the country are done.
