All the answers, while not all correctly identifying the city, identified the country as Japan. At least I think they did. Well travelled as I am Japan is one place I am lacking in my knowledge. The twisted photograph is of the Temple of the Golden Pavilion or, to give it its Japanese name, Kinkaku-ji. This Buddhist temple is in the city of Kyoto.
The distorted photograph for this week is a view that is one of the iconic views of the city to be identified. It includes a structure that once identified will go a long way to identify the city.
