Kinkaku-ji also known as Rokuon-Ji (Deer Garden Temple). A Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto, Japan. My visit to this temple was amazing. I took a stroll around the pond which reflects the temple. I don't recall seeing deer at this temple unlike the temples in Nara. I was told that the gold leafs were done by one person in order for each piece to be placed with the same "touch". During the festival's you can purchase sake with gold flakes!
