This exquisite Zen Buddhist temple is officially named Rokuonji, however, people more commonly refer to it as Kinkakuji or Golden Pavillion. The name comes from the top two floors of the temple, lavishly covered with gold leaf. A pond surrounds the temple and on clear days its golden reflection can be seen shimmering in the water.
