Mellow Yellow Monday

Today's my yellow shot is this architecture. Strictly speaking, it is not yellow, but please allow me to join.
 Do you know the name of this shining architecture? It may be one of the most famous buildings in Japan.

This is Kinkakuji Temple, or the Golden Pavilion, which is the landmark of Kyoto.  Every time I see it, I am overwhelmed with its beauty. You can not enter the building, just walk around. The second and the third walls are covered with thick gold leaves attached on the black lacquer. Looking from far away, the shining reflection in the sunset looks yellow (gold) and really impressive.

  9. Thanks for visiting my blog -how did you end up with a Western name like Annie? Is it like in China where everyone also has an English name next to their Chinese name?

    1. Thanks for stopping by. Annie is my blog name I use from my pet's name which died three months ago. Japanese people have no Western name and my true name is different.
