Be sure to visit the temples within and surrounding this Temple. Less populated with tourists and people, this is the perfect chance for you to unwind and see the true historical beauty of Kyoto

One of the most beautiful temples i have ever seen in Japan!!

It is such a striking site seeing the beautiful gold against the lovely scenery!
The best time to go is early morning or when the gates are about to close which is at 5pm most days as there will be less people :)

You can buy charms in Kinkaku-ji, including some unique ones with Kinkaku-ji on them! If you are going to buy charms for yourself or your loved ones as a souvenir from Kyoto, I recommend getting some from this temple.

I would also like to say that what you see in the photographs is pretty much what you'll get... You're basically paying for a photo of the "Golden Pavilion" because there's not much else on the temple grounds. I thought I would just mention it because while I enjoyed the place, my brother found it severely underwhelming and asked me "Is that it?" after we left.
