Covered in Gold (paint?), this beautiful temple is based on the outskirts of Kyoto.
One three day weekend my friends and I set out on a mission. We wanted to see the sunrise over the East coast of Japan (seen here near Oarai), drive all the way across the country and see the same day's sun set on the West coast over the Sea of Japan. Sadly, we had to get up at 3am to catch the sunrise.
