The absolutely perfect Kinkaku-Ji temple (Golden Pavilion) in Kyoto, Japan

Japanese perfection:

Famous for it’s temples the cultural capital of Japan is Kyoto.  Visiting the Golden Pavilion the Japanese traditions of perfection and beauty makes Kinkaku-ji my favourite temple in Japan.

On a fresh fall day the still waters reflect an almost perfect mirror.  Capturing a photo like this is made easy if you visit this temple.  It’s main viewing point sets you up perfectly for an image like this.

God I love Japan!

    Been there, it was amazing.
    They told me the phoenix bird statue on top is made of solid gold, but later I found out it’s only gold-plated!
    It’s a wonderful temple, anyway…
