Trip to Kyoto Day 4

Early in the Morning on July 6 2015, the two other girl interns went back to the Kiyomizu-dera so they could see the whole thing. They had never been to the Kiyomizu-dera temple, so they wanted to see more than just the shops.

Then we met up back at the hotel, and went to Kinkaku-ji or the golden temple. Kinkaku-ji, officially named Rokuon-ji, is a Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto, Japan. The garden complex is an excellent example of Muromachi period garden design. The Muromachi period is considered to be a classical age of Japanese garden design.

On our way back to the station, we picked up something to eat, did a little shopping, and then proceeded to go to our bags. We stored our bags in coin lockers at the station.

We got on shinkansen (bullet train) to Tokyo. Then at Tokyo, we got on an express train to Omika. We were on the express train for about 1 hour and 40 minutes. We were on the shinkansen for about 2 hours and 20 minutes.
