A photographer's dream

The golden pavilion has considerably more bling than it's sister the silver pavilion. It is a photographer's dream reflected in the pond that dominates the formal garden. However it can get pretty busy so you may need to jostle for the perfect spot.

Whilst strolling around the garden you will pass the mound of the white snake commemorating the spot where one of Yoshimitsu's mistresses threw herself in the pond in a fit of jealousy.

A golden temple

We've been to this golden temple twice. It's a small temple on the side of a lake in the city of Kyoto, and is the most visited monument in the city. In general, the Japanese are polite, but this site is popular, so prepare yourself for crowds. In particular, it can be really difficult to take good pictures. It's a charming spot, surrounded by gardens, and with several shops where you can buy souvenirs.
