#Kyoto is spoiled with beauty at every corner, it must be a photographers’ wet dream. I like this zen temple the most for its gorgeous gardens and the path up the hill of the Higashiyama mountains. Ok so it’s not made out of gold, but the surroundings sure makes up for it #ginkakuji #japan #templeporn #vsco #vscocam (at Ginkaku-ji)
