Kyoto’s Most Famous Temple, Kinkaku-ji, The Golden Pavilion

IMG_20150628_205626 IMG_20150628_210216ThisIMG_20150628_205751 is quite a place and we had a sunny day unlike previous visits. Some crazy monk intentionally burned it to the ground in 1950. Was rebuilt and opened again in1955. Typically this temple is over run with tourists but today was an exception, sunshine and few people like us. This was the first stop today on a 4 temple trek. Got a later start today and the 4th location closed before we got there. Will start earlier tomorrow.
