The most fascinating place we have visited in Kyoto. Amazed by the beaty of golden castle. It is must visit place in Kyoto. There is an entrance fee, but it worth it once you will see the casle. We are lucky enough to see castle in clear day sky.

Kinkakuji Temple is one of the image you see in books. Seeing it in person has been a tremendous experience. The surrounding park is also very good; I just wished we had more time to explore the surroundings a bit more thoroughly.

Kinkakuji, literally Golden Temple lives up to its name. There are various temples within this area and this one takes the top stop if you are short of time. The temple can be viewed from many angles, across the pond, behind, in front, on top of a mountain... Simply magnificent...

This place is famous for one view, but strolling around, looking at the other points of view, and learning about the landscapes will give you a great perspective and memories when you'll see this famous view again.
