After a 15 year hiatus, I finally got to see Kinkakuji. I visited Kyoto on Golden Week 15 years ago and due to the crowds, didn't even bother with with the Golden temple. I went the day after GW on a Monday and the darned temple was hidden behind a tarp for cleaning and restoration! This time around, I did manage to snap a few nice photos of the place and its surroundings.
I ended my visit to the Gold Temple with a Goldfish.
ps. In case you're wondering what a Kinkajou is, watch this.
