April 21, 2006 – Photo Friday “Golden”


This week’s Photo Friday contest theme is golden. This is a shot of the Zen Temple known as Kinkakuji (Golden Pavilion) in Kyoto, Japan. It dates to 1397 and now holds sacred relics of the Buddha and is covered in gold leaf. I was able to visit here on a trade mission to Japan, opening the doors to sell Wholesome Harvest organic meat to Japan.
