KINKAKUJI - THE TEMPLE COVERED WITH GOLD LEAVES


20th MARCH 2017 ~ Why do people come and visit Kinkakuji? It is actually a Zen temple whose top two floors were totally covered with gold leaves. Visitors were not allowed access into the temple though. The best option was to get the photo taken from across the pond, and there were too many people trying to squeeze in between the crowd to get the best spot.
 possible.


























The place was quite big but the main attraction was the temple building. Then we walked around the Japanese garden before finding the exit.






That should be the very last place visited during my Kyoto and Osaka trip last March. There are just too many attractions in both cities and you will definitely need to spend more time here to get to see more.

I hope I could make a comeback one day.
