Nenek-nenek Petualang

Suatu hari diawal tahun 2013, di stasiun Kasado, yang masuk wilayah kota Suzuka, terlihat dua orang nenek-nenek dan seorang kakek mengenakan atribut avonturir lengkap. Di tengah dinginnya pagi, mereka mengecek jadwal kereta di papan pengumuman. Ternyata, banyak kakek-nenek di Jepang yang mengisi hari tua mereka dengan berpetualang, 山上り(hiking, yama nobori) dan sejenisnya.

Ketika saya memfotonya, dia menengok, lalu saya mengalihkan hape ke sudut lain, berpura-pura memfoto obyek lain. Begitulah aktivitas kaum tua di negeri ini, umur bukan halangan untuk berpetualang menikmati alam. Dinginnya salju musim dingin juga bukan alasan untuk berdiam diri saja di rumah. Ganbatte obaachan!

Nijo Castle / Nijo-jo (二女城)

Besides the Kinkaku-ji, the Nijo castle or Nijo-jo (二女城) is another interesting place to be visited if you have limited time in Kyoto. 

One of the buildings in Nijo-jo
In  1603, the castle firstly built as the official Kyoto residence of the first Tokugawa shogun, Ieyasu. The construction process was finish in 1626 by third Tokugawa shogun, Iemitsu. He added some structures transferred from Fushimi castle, which is built in 1573-1614 in Momoyama period.

Nijo castle is the most finest temple of early Edo period and Momoyama culture in Japan. It makes splendid use of early Edo period building design, lavish painting, and carving that Iemitsu generously commissioned.

When the fifteenth Tokugawa Shogun, Yoshinobu, returned sovereignty to the Emperor, the castle become the property of the Imperial family. It was renamed the Nijo Detached Palace in 1884 and renamed again to be Nijo castle (Nijo-jo) when it was donated to the city of Kyoto in 1939.

Kinkaku-ji: The Golden Pavillion in Kyoto

Today I have visited the kinkaku-ji, or it is also called as Rokuon-ji, the golden pavilion in Kyoto city, Japan. Kikaku-ji is a reliquary hall (Japan: 舎利殿 - shariden) containing relics of the master. The pavilion is part of the temple namely Rokuon-ji, but most of the people call it Kinkaku-ji as the main building  in the complex is kinkaku-ki.

Kikaku-ji: The golden Pavilion

Originally, the temple was the site of villa which the name is Kitayama-dai which is owned by statesman namely Saionji Kintsune. The 3rd Muromachi's shogun, Ashikaga Yoshimitsu, took liking to the area and acquired it from Kitsune family in 1397. The the villa was built and get a name, Kitayama-den.
