Kinkaku-ji, or the Golden Pavilion, is considered the jewel of the Japanese architectural collection. The palace covered with gold dazzles with its beauty and luxury. There is no tourist destination in Japan that would be able to compete with it.
The splendid palace was built in 1397. In the sun, its walls shine with inconceivable beauty. Kinkaku-ji is part of the Rokuonji temple complex. It is considered the best example of national culture.
The appropriate period for the march
Welcome dear travel fans! I've been traveling around the world for 20 years and most of my trips were to Asia. I think I have been crazy about Japan since I was a child and will be happy to share this passion with you.
UNESCO World Heritage site Kinkaku-ji also known as the Golden Pavilion is claimed to be one of the most photogenic places in Japan. All the 3 stories of this temple are built in different styles and two of them are covered with gold leaf which makes its reflection in the pond so gorgeous.
Although it’s prohibited to enter the temple there is still much to see. You can walk around the pond and enjoy the greenery of the garden. Again it is better to visit in the morning when it’s still serene and not crowded, remember that it’s one of the three most famous places in Kyoto.
