I love this ANABA because it is the most iconic place in Kyoto where you can actually feel the history. And it is one of the few world heritage sites in Japan.
It looks like literally a golden temple. I've visited many temples in the past but this is by far the most gorgeous temples I've ever seen.
Perfect for those who love history, buildings and Japanese gardens.

Rokuon - ji Temple was originally built as a villa by Ashikaga Yoshimitsu, who had taken possession of a mountain villa of Saionji Temple in 1397. It was converted into a temple after Yoshimitsu's death. Officially named Rokuonji Temple, this temple is famous both in Japan and abroad as a symbol of Kitayama culture. The Kinkaku, or "Golden Pavilion," was built as the Shariden. Covered with gold, the image of the pavilion, which stands at the edge of Kyokochi pond, is reflected in the water. Major repair work performed in 1987 has further enhanced its brilliance. (From JNTO)
