Scaffolded the Kinkaku, Golden Pavilion in Rokuon-ji

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.

I strolled in the garden of temple with very few visitors.

Anmintaku
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
