From the top garden pathway at Ginkaku-ji Temple, the city of Kyoto is laid out below. In the lower right-hand corner is a raked Zen sand garden (a large scale version of those tiny ones made for desks). The temple in this picture was originally intended to have silver foil laid over the outside, but in the 1400s the owner died before completing the plans, so it instead sits against the skyline and half-naked beauty.
