Kinkakuji in the Kita district of Kyoto city. A view of Kinkakuji Temple with the three-story building reflected on the surface of the Kyoko Pond. The first floor is done in shinden zukuri (Fujiwara palace style), the second is in Shoin zukuri (drawing-room style) and the third floor where the Buddha is enshrined is in Chinese style. The second and third floors are covered in gold, and thus the name of "Kinkaku "(Golden Pavilion). To the left is Ashibara island and Nakajima.
