Magical and breathtaking - a must visit in my book!

Since the temple fills up really quickly with tourists, timing your arrival for when it opens at 9 helps you avoid the crowds and gives you time to set up your equipment for the best pictures!

I finally managed to visit this place in my second trip to Kyoto. Easy access via bus. I'd recommend to visit Kinkaku-Ji if you have limited times and hesitated on Ginkaku-Ji or Kinkaku-Ji.
