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. A man enjoys a boat ride on the pond. Pine forest surrounds the pond, and Mt. Daimonji and Takamine are visible in the background. Taken by Felix Beato.
