"TEMPLES!!" Kinkaku-ji - Golden Pavilion Tip by Francesco-C

Kinkaku-ji - Golden Pavilion, Kyoto: 85 reviews and 184 photos


Visit some of the marvelous Temples and Shrines of the ancient capital of Japan, you can choose among hundreds of them.
Very nice places and relaxing atmosphere. If you come from western country (like me) you can enjoy also different architectural style. My favourite are SANJUSANGEN-DO (with 1001 statues of Kannon), KIYOMIZU-DERA (very nice in Cherry Blossom season), HEIAN-JINGU (see intro pic).

Address: 1 Kinkaku-ji-cho, Kita-ku, North Kyoto
Directions: You can find a temple that worth to be seen simply everywhere in Kyoto.
