kyoto kinkaku-ji temple 金閣寺


I went to my family’s house in Kyoto. Kinkaku-ji temple was built in 1397 as a villa for Ashikaga Yoshimitsu, and is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1994. Kinkaku means Golden Pavilion. It was burned down to the ground in 1950, however the extract reproduction of the original building was completed. I want to live in a GOLD house like this too 🙂
