What to Expect
At Ginkakuji Temple, you can see the two-story pavillion and enjoy a beautiful sand garden represents the Zen aestheticism of Wabi-Sabi.
(It's called 'Ginkakuji Temple' meaning silver temple, however, no silver is used for this temple.)
At Chionji Temple, the handmade flea market has been held since 1987, and now, the number of shops has been getting larger and larger.
You can enjoy seeing and shopping handmade goods.
* The market is held on rainy days, too.
Then, if you want, I will take you to two shops in the downtown which sell Japanese old cloth.(Japanese Indigo blue, old cloth used for kimono, and so on.) If you prefer shopping at the flea market, please tell me.
For your reference, I stayed there for two hours because it was such a hot day, and one of my friends who likes handmade very much, stayed there for four hours even in summer!
