Ginkakuji

Newer Older

Ginkakuji, the Silver Pavilion, is the accompanying foil of the Golden Pavilion. Formally known as Tozan Jishoji, it is famous for its contemplative sand garden. The shogun who built this originally planned to cover the villa with silver, hence its name. But the plan never materialized. The name, however, has stuck.

    Salamat gid, Farl, for your comments on my flickr site. Sometimes we experience the pure and simple joys and happiness in life. This is why I love to sail...it's all part of what it means to be "Visayan."
    Happy Easter to you and your family.
