Encircling the Golden Pavilion is a footpath through a garden. In Japanese, the style is referred to as kaiyū-shiki-teien. The manicured greenspace features mature trees, a small waterfall, temple buildings and the White Snake Pagoda centered on an islet and surrounded by the pond of An-min-taku. The trail ends at the Sekkatei Teahouse. As you stroll along, you can imagine how tranquil this setting was before invaded by tourists.
