Kinkakuji Temple (Golden Pavilion)
The Golden Pavilion was built in 1397 and was burned twice. The current gold leaf-coated reconstruction was unveiled in 1955, five years after the 14th-century original was torched by one of the temple's monks.
Sanjusangendo was built in 1164 by Goshirakawa, the then emperor of Japan. Many national treasures are lying in this shrine.
