Kyoto

Not actual book cover.

The novel is loosely based on the burning of the Reliquary (or Golden Pavilion) of Kinkaku-ji in Kyoto by a young Buddhist acolyte in 1950. The pavilion, dating from before 1400, was a national monument that had been spared destruction many times throughout history, and the arson shocked Japan.

The Temple of the Golden Pavilion is a novel by the Japanese author Yukio Mishima.

  • A mesmerizing and unforgettable journey.
  • No setting seems as mystical and foreign as the Golden Temple.
