Kinkakuji ia one of those places where you really have to visit when in kyoto. Its a great site with a lot of options for taking pictures, mainly of the same thing.
But really where else do you get to see gold buildings? Not nearly often enough is the answer.
Lots of people and tours here bit it was small enough to be able to work around. We even went in a second time because we miased some prime pictures and couldnt leave without them. We did fly a long way.
All in all a fun hour or so. Plus continued to collect out goshu in in our (apparently) goshu in chon. But J told be that was the name of the book so who knows.
