Tips from the community
While this is probably Kyoto’s busiest tourist spot, avoiding it would be such a mistake. Kinkaku-ji (or Temple of the Golden Pavilion, as it’s often known) is a tremendous site. Beyond the fact that its walls are shimmering gold, it also sits at the centre of a pond surrounded by lush green and black pine trees. It’s a stunning setting that feels like it was ripped right out of a storybook.

Kinkaku-Ji is a Buddhist temple famous for its glittering golden color- standing out from other traditional temples from the same era. This stunning destination is steeped in unique history, and surrounded by picturesque natural grounds, causing it to be one of the most visited temples in Kyoto.

- madeleineray (Madeleine Ray) Kyoto is the historic capital of Japan- a breathtakingly beautiful city that has held onto traditional architecture and culture to an extent that has solidified its spot as one of the most beautiful cities to visit in the world. Kyoto is famous for ancient temples in pristine condition, natural beauty, and matcha flavored sweets. From stone pathways alongside cherry blossom-adorned canals to massive Buddhist temples overlooking the city- these are my top picks for your Kyoto bucket list.
