Ginkakuji or Silver Pavilion is a Zen temple with other temple buildings and multiple gardens, also it is called the Silver Pavilion it was never covered in silver, but apparently it gives off a silvery appearance when reflected....who knows.

Finally finished the post on day 6, I really recommend going to a few of these famous temples when you're in Kyoto because it's a city that still has historical buildings and symbolises the traditional side of Japan.
I'll be updating more posts these 2 weeks because it's holidays, and I've done most of my homework, so be prepared for more posts on my Japan trip :)
