The Golden Pavilion at Rokuon-ji Temple seen from the western edge of Kyoko Pond, facing north-northeast. The shrubbery on the right is Ashihara Island. The temple was built in 1398. Unlike the building of today, the original roof was supported by many columns at each level. People enjoy the view of the pond from the first-floor cloister. Water weeds float on the surface of the pond. Mt. Daimonji and Takamine are visible in the background. Taken by Felix Beato.
