I had been looking forward to visiting Ginkakuji or Silver Pavilion since I saw a photo in a guide book. We took a walk along the beautiful Philosopher’s Path and Ginkakuji is on the northern end of the path. When we arrived some hours later, I was not disappointed.
I wanted to see the sand garden, and here it was. I love that cone shape sand mount – if I had a big knife I’d cut it into slices like a cake…
I couldn’t stop taking photos.
Here’s another view of the sand garden, and of Kyoto.
There are several other gardens too.
Thick moss groundcover… I am not sure what that hole is for.
Visit Scenic Sunday to see photos around the world.
