Reflection of aristocratic glory in Kyoto's retreat

Kinkakuji Temple is also known as the Golden Pavilion in northern Kyoto. The top two floors of the pavilion is covered in gold leaf and it is surrounded with a large pond,  the reflection of the temple is amazing. You will follow a walk path that guides you around the temple area and when you are done, you will be able to enjoy tea and dessert surrounded with trees to rest your body and buy some souvenirs if you wish in the gift shop at the end of it.
