Finally we got on the right bus heading back to the Kyoto station where there was a long queue waiting for us. Not bad. At least we already got a seat. After 45 mins, we reached the temple station. We walked the path, bought the ticket and entered the temple. There were many students. It was a beautiful golden temple resting on quiet waters. We spent sometime watching the landscape along the designated path (it's the bad thing - too commercial). At the end of the visit there were some shops and booths selling souvneirs, desserts and preserved vegetables. We bought some we like. We left the temple and changed bus (#204) heading towards 銀閣寺.
After 20 mins or so we reached the station 銀閣寺道. We bought some sushi and food at the supermarket next to the bus stop. We ate our lunch on a bench along the "path of philosophy" 哲學之道. Again there were quite many students at the temple. We bought the tickets and went round the temple for some time.
