Among the many temples in Kyoto, my favorite is Ginkakuji (the Silver Pavilion).
Miraculously survived all through the inferno of Onin War, its historical value is immense.
Say, it's not gorgeous as much as Kinkakuji (Golden Pavilion), but still it conveys the true spirit of Japan. Constructed by the 8th Shogun of Muromachi Shogunate, its elegance can be listed as the supremacy of Japanese beauty.
Simplicity, that's the key.
Please visit there in YUMEYAKATA's retro-inspired KIMONO.
