Gorgeous!! Kinkaku-ji (Golden Pavilion)
Suppose you are dressed in YUMEYAKATA’s nice Kimono, but have no idea where to go… OK, we strongly recommend to visit Kinkaku-ji Temple (金閣寺, the Golden pavilion).
It’s a flamboyant construction with two hundred thousand pieces of gold plates. Built by Yoshimitsu Ashikaga (足利義満), the 3rd shogun (将軍, the chief commander) of the Muromachi (室町) Shogunate, the temple has been considered as a symbol of the power among Japanese.
As you see the gleaming aura of the temple shining under the blue sky, for sure you will be mesmerized as if you wandered into Gokuraku Jodo (極楽浄土, the pure land, a religious and imaginary heaven in Buddhism).
Please visit this utopia, in YUMEYAKATA kimono, a perfect outfit for visiting the Golden Pavilion.
