Another packed bus ride takes us to Ginkakuji, the silver pavilion. The ground of this temple are much more beautiful than the last, with winding stone stairs through trees and moss covered hills, and offering views of Kyoto in the sunset. The pavilion itself is not very pretty, since it was never covered in silver as planned, but the sculpted sand and rock gardens create such an amazing setting and an enjoyable time. There is a shopping street next to the temple, so we stop for some oyakodon (chicken and egg over rice) before beginning our trek to the final temple. At the bus stop, many people are waiting with us - rush hour has hit. When the bus arrives, it's already quite full, but of course, we all pile on. This bus is the tightest squeeze ever - unbelievably uncomfortable. To make matters worse, we are barely moving in traffic! After enduring a half-hour of this, we get off and walk, outpacing the bus easily. It's now night, but the streets are very crowded. We pass through a huge shrine on our way to the temple, and start climbing stone streets with lots of hills, passing many shops and Kyoto nightlife. We pass a giant temple that I'm sure is our destination, but Matt tells me it's not - we keep going.
