Our next stop was Rokuon-ji, popularly known as “Kinkaku-ji” because of the golden pavilion that brings in all the foreign tourists, and therefore all the yen. The temple grounds funnel you along a single path that takes you past the pavilion and through a garden… and, of course, through a row of tents selling charms and other souvenirs.
