I took a day trip to Kinkazan in Gifu today. It was a spur of the moment decision based on the beautiful weather and not having a ton of chores to worry about. I got ready in record time and hopped on a train to Gifu, before taking a bus to a park at the base of the mountain.
Near the ticket booth and station platform for the ropeway leading to the top, visitors could see this pagoda. Surrounded by mountains, I couldn’t help but think it beautiful. I can only imagine how it’s going to look amongst the autumn leaves in a few months. Maybe I can arrange to come back to snap more pictures then.
