The Golden Pavilion

Well luckly the weather was good today so I mannaged to visit it finally...
the Golden pavilion ( Kinkakukji ) the most famous site in Kyoto

If you recognize it before, I used this temple in the blog header as a sign of my presence in japan

The original Kinkaku-ji was built in 1397, the top two stories of the pavilion are covered with pure gold leaf.
and the fall season adds to the beauty...
