Abstract

Kinkaku-ji, the Temple of the Golden Pavilion, is one of Kyoto’s most visited tourist attractions. Most people who visit the site do not have the opportunity to experience the rich art and culture that are part of its history. We worked with our sponsor, Kyoto VR, to create an app that would allow visitors of Kinkaku-ji to better experience these aspects of the site. We used Unity to create an audio tour app that provides historical insight on the location, displays galleries of art throughout the visit, and offers accessibility features through AR. We also developed a tool to aid in the design and creation of audio tours. We hope our app will enhance the experience of visiting Kinkaku-ji.
