A 3 storied pagoda

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 […]

Furukawa Art Museum
