If there is 'golden temple', there should be 'golden shrine'

 Kinkakuji temple (Golden Pavilion / Golden temple) is one of the famous temple in Kyoto. Then, how about golden 'shrine'? You might not have heard of it, but there is a golden shrine in Kyoto as well, which is Mikane shrine.
 It's located in a normal residential area, which seems pretty odd for most of the people (except who lives in Kyoto). Look at the gate, it's totally gold!
If you see the roof, you can find a Kanji letter is written on tiles. That means 'gold' as well.
 These days it's getting popular among the people who wishes good luck for money related things (business, investment, lottery, increasing salary, etc.). If you are one of them, why don't you visit there?
