The Temple of the Golden Pavilion – excerpt

Three parts of the temple were strikingly white – the roofs of the Kukyocho and the Choondo and the little roof of the Sosei. The rest of the uninhabited building was dark, and there was rather something fresh about the blackness of the complicated, wooden structure that stood out in relief against the snow. — Mishima
