My bag from Asos made a debut on Sunday when we went to see the famous Kinkokuji temple in Kyoto. Kinkakuji (金閣寺, Golden Pavilion) is a Zen temple in the middle of a beautiful pond and it’s top two floors are completely covered in gold leaf. There is a pond surrounding the temple and the reflection of the temple on water looks spectacular.

After viewing Kinkakuji the path passes by Kinkakuji from behind then leads through the temple’s gardens which have retained their original design. The gardens hold a few spots like Anmintaku Pond that is said to never dry up, and statues that people throw coins at for luck. Outside the exit are souvenir shops, a small tea garden where you can have matcha tea and sweets. I bought a small souvenir of an owl from there. It was very cold after the rain so we went back to JR Kyoto station and had an early dinner of Spanish cheese platter, prosciutto, sausages and chicken + mushroom paella at Rico Bar & Cafe in Hotel Granvia Kyoto.

Now coming to my bag..It was raining that day so it was a wrong day to take my bag out but it however survived the rain !! I had a gift voucher from Asos and chose this bag as it has that perfect red colour and that perfect size. The first time I ordered, it couldn’t reach my address in Japan and went back. I ordered again from India and the bag I received had a small stain so I asked Asos people to change it. They were sweet enough to send me another bag (same style of course). Now I have two of these bags..any suggestions what to do with the other one??
