Kinkaku-ji Temple (Golden Pavilion)

Kinkaku-ji Temple (Golden Pavilion)

The glistening golden outer walls of Kinkaku-ji Temple (the Golden Pavilion) have earned this Buddhist temple a place as a World Heritage site. The gardens of this special historical site and scenic spot are said to represent the Land of Perfect Bliss. The first floor of this rare architecture reflects the culture of royalty, and the second floor reflects the culture of the warrior.
