Lieu à visiter au Japon : le Kinkaku-ji, le joyau doré de Kyoto

À l'ombre des collines du nord-ouest de Kyoto se loge un bijou de l'ancienne capitale : le temple Rokuon-ji, plus connu sous son nom usuel de Kinkaku-ji, le "pavillon d'or". Partez à la découverte de cette bâtisse éblouissante et de ses secrets...

The Gardens of Kinkaku-ji

Then you are greeted with a garden that immerses you in the heart of a miniaturization of the Amida Buddha's paradise. The path leads you to foothills of the mountains, the top of the golden pavilion flashing in and out of sight, so you won't know where to look. 

Ponds, thickets of dense forests, moss gardens ... The landscapes are numerous in this garden which goes up and down. If you're feeling flush, go ahead and throw a few coins at the feet of the Buddhist effigies for good luck.
