Layers of Zen - Kyoto - Japan

The Golden Pavilion Kinkaku-ji is one of the major attraction of Kyoto not only because of the beauty of its architecture and its history but also because of the close natural environment. Here you have a synthesis of what japanese people consider as harmony when construction is melted perfectly to nature. The silence can be experienced in this picture while the tree draws different layers aligned with the levels of the pavilion. Layers of Zen.
