And the most photographed Temple in Japan.

Please Notice: There is an access fee to visit the Temple (400 Yen in 2018)
Requirements for logging the cache
Please notice that you need the required photo with your geocacher name - a photo of just you near the pavilion is not acceptable for logging this cache - and will be deleted
1. Take a Photo near the coordinates with your geocacher name written on a piece of paper and showing Kinkaku-ji temple in the photo.
You do not have to show your face in the Photo.
2. Upload the Photo with your log. (or send the photo to me in Message Center)
New in 2020: If and only IF there are special conditions (like very heavy rain) that prevent you from writing your name on a piece of paper, then you can do the peace sign with your hand and take a photo of that - and of course Kinkaku-ji temple must be in the photo too.
But this is ONLY allowed if there are special conditions - the conditions must be listed in the log.
