First, check out the following picture of Kinkakuji Temple in normal weather.
Then look at the picture below taken when it snowed.
It is true that winter in Kyoto is chilly. But that doesn’t mean that it snows heavily very often. When it does, it is worth braving the crowds and the weather to see this beautiful scene.
Or if you rather want to read the guidebook on your Kindle e-book reader or application, then get our Kyoto e-Guidebook on Amazon instead.
