Pucchio Japan Sakura Tour-Day 7

As we have visited most of the places that we have planned, today we visited the final Kinkakuji. Kinkaku-ji (金閣, literally "Temple of the Golden Pavilion"), officially named Rokuon-ji (鹿苑, literally "Deer Garden Temple"), is a ZenBuddhist temple in KyotoJapan It is one of the most popular buildings in Japan, attracting a large number of visitors annually. It is designated as a National Special Historic Site and a National Special Landscape, and it is one of 17 locations making up the Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto which are World Heritage Sites

This shop sells all kinds of omamori or Japanese amulets commonly sold at religious sites and dedicated to particular Shinto deities as well as Buddhist figures, and are said to provide various forms of luck or protection.

Omamori may provide general blessings and protection, or may have a specific focus such as:

  • kōtsū-anzen – traffic safety-protection for drivers and travelers of all sorts

  • yaku-yoke – avoidance of evil

  • kaiun – open luck, better fortune

  • gakugyō-jōju – education and passing examinations-for students and scholars

  • shōbai-hanjō – prosperity in business-success in business and matters of money

  • en-musubi – acquisition of a mate and marriage-available for singles and couples to ensure love and marriage

  • anzan – protection for pregnant women for a healthy pregnancy and easy delivery

  • kanai-anzen – safety (well-being) of one's family, peace and prosperity in the household

Matcha tea with gold leaves. Special gifts for your friends at 1,680 per packet.

As we have extra time after our visit to Kinkakuji, we decided to add Arashiyama Bamboo Grooves as our Additional Tour.

As beautiful as seen on this picture.

After Arashiyama visit, we headed down to Rinku Premium Outlet

So much shopping after a few hours at Rinku Premium Outlets, Osaka.

More shoppings at 100 yen shop and Aeon Mall, just 2 minutes walk, opposite the newly opened Karaksa Spring Hotel, Osaka. The Aeon Mall is open 24 hours, so it is quite convenient for last minute shoppers before flight. Kansai International Airport is just 20 minutes drive away by bus.
