Have you ever thought why Kinkakuji-Temple is almost gold color?
Kinkakuji-Temple was built in the culture mixing Samurai and China one.
At that time the leader of Japanese government had almost of all things he wanted.
So he wanted to spent the rest of his life calmly but gorgeously.
That is the reason why he built Kinkakuji-Temple.
