Our first full day in Kyoto was Christmas Day. We headed to Kiitano Tenmangu Shrine, which has a market on the 25th of every month. We browsed the many stalls selling food and trinkets then took a look at the shrine itself. After that, we headed over to Kinkaku-ji, a Zen Buddhist temple famous for its gold leaf covering. I've been waiting to see this site for a very long time, and it did not disappoint!
