"This was a short trip, taking in Nijo Castle, the Golden Pavilion and the Imperial Palace. It was a little rushed, given the distance to be covered between the sites. Personally, I'd have preferred more time to explore at Nijo Castle, and I wasn't that taken aback by the Imperial Palace. The Golden Pavilion was swarming with tourists and school children, but this is unavoidable. All in all, given the time I had, and given what I saw, I'd say the trip was good. I'd recommend to people short on time, but for those with more time I'd suggest visiting these sites independently."
