Reaching the Temple of the Golden Pavillion

I have a lifetime ambition to visit as many UNESCO World Heritage Sites as possible and on the trip to Japan I was able to tick quite a few off this list. One of the most spectacular sites had to be the Temple of the Golden Pavillion (Kikaku-ji) in Kyoto.
