The Golden Pavilion at Rokuon-ji Temple seen from the western edge of Kyoko Pond, facing east-northeast. The rock in the pond on the right is Akamatsu-ishi. Kameyama-ishi is visible in the left foreground with Dejima behind it. The temple was built in 1398 destroyed by arson in 1950. Unlike the reconstructed building of today, the original roof was supported by many columns at each level. The pavilion looks dilapidated, perhaps due to the poor colouration.
