It's a temple...Made of gold... Do I really need to say more?
Well yes, it's actually gold leaf I believe, or something along those lines.
Anyway, this temple is what's on the majority of postcards in Kyoto and one of the main sights you may associate Japan with. And in my experience, its pretty darn cool.
This temple gets crazy busy, prepare for cameras everywhere. Prepare to walk through everyone's photos. They will not move for you, show them who's boss!
There are a few more sights within the temple complex, though they are all kind of "eh" compared to, ya'know, "The Golden Temple".
Everyone goes here. EVERYONE. But! There is a reason why.
It's super cool and super beautiful!
