Owner description: One of Kyoto's most famous attractions, this temple was originally built in 1397 as a residence for shogun Ashikaga Yoshimitsu. The structure was completely covered in gold leaf, earning it the name Golden Pavilion.

Very nice park and beatiful temple, a must to visit. Best to visit during weekdays which is already crowed.

This Temple is so amazing, Beautiful site to take a picture, To get there, i recommend to take a Bus or Train is better, Train station (Kitaoji St.) is within a walking distance. A must place to visit when you come to Kyoto.

Recommended place to see in kyoto. The site are beatiful for picture taking. Recommend to take train cause car parking is hard and too far from the entrance. There is an entrance fee 400 yen for adult and 200 for student.

This temple is out of the way but worth the trip to get there. I have been to Kyoto several times and this remains one of my favorite sites in Kyoto. The golden pavilion is simply beautiful! Don't miss this one!
