THE POSTCARD PERFECT GOLDEN PAVILION TEMPLE JAPAN 金閣寺

Traveling to Japan has been one of the biggest life experiences for me. They have a rich culture and history that was so beautiful to experience. 

The reason I titled this post ‘postcard perfect’ was that every picture we took of the Golden Pavilion, looked like it should be on the front of a postcard. It was unreal seeing it for the first time.

It is such an impressive structure that is built overlooking a large pond, making it even more mystical. The Zen temple in northern Kyoto has two floors that are completely covered in gold leaf.
