The Golden Pavilion at Rokuonji Temple seen from the eastern edge of Kyoko Pond, facing west-northwest. The shrubbery on the left is Ashihara Island. The temple was built in 1398 but destroyed by arson in 1950. Unlike the reconstructed building of today, the original roof was supported by many columns at each level. Three people enjoy the view of the pond from the first-floor cloister. Pine forest stretches all around. Mt. Momoyama rises in the background.
