Kinkaku, Golden Pavilion (10 September 2020)
When I arrived at the entrance to the golden pavilion in Rokuon-ji temple I was told that the pavilion was covered by scaffolds to renew wood shingle roof. This repair work has started from the beginning of September and will continue to December.
It was a little bit regrettable not to take beautiful picture but I changed my mind it was good chance to see rare scene of the covered pavilion.
It was just started renovation work so a little bit visible inside through the scaffolds.

The pond of Kyoko-chi, The scene from the pavilion looks a little bit lonely.
I strolled in the garden of temple with very few visitors.

Anmintaku is a pond surrounded by deep forest. As it does not dry up even during droughts, it has been used as a place to pray for rain. The small islet inside the pond holds a five-ringed stone pagoda known as Hakuja-cho, or White Snake Mound
