Miffy/Something Else Tag - Japan

I have bought some Miffy card a few weeks ago and I was happy when I discoverd the Miffy/something else tag so I could send them away and receive something back from my wishlist. I received a very beautiful card from Japan. It is an UNESCO world heritage site; the Kinkaku-Ji Temple in Kyoto! It was send by Yamimi. Thanks for this beautiful card.

"Built in A.D. 794 on the model of the capitals of ancient China, Kyoto was the imperial capital of Japan from its foundation until the middle of the 19th century. As the centre of Japanese culture for more than 1,000 years, Kyoto illustrates the development of Japanese wooden architecture, particularly religious architecture, and the art of Japanese gardens, which has influenced landscape gardening the world over."
