To get to Kinkaku-ji, also known as The Golden Pavillion, we took bus 59 from Imadegawa. Since we knew we were going to use the bus thrice. Once we got there, there were a swarm of people taking photos and admiring the Kinkaku-ji. Who can resist the gold-plated temple surrounded by the tranquil water garden? As the other tourist spots, this, too, was preserved well.
